Figs are native to the Middle East but are also traditionally grown in Western Asia and Mediterranean regions. Fresh figs can be golden yellow to deep purple in color, depending on the region they are from and contain hundreds of tiny seeds on the inside, which add a crunchy texture to the rich sweet taste. Figs are packed with high amounts of calcium, magnesium, potassium and fibre content.
Figs are incredibly popular in the Middle East and Mediterranean and often accompany cheese based salads and dishes because of its ability to cut through some of the dairy and high fat content. Try using figs in both sweet and savoury dishes.
