Come down to us from distant Mesopotamia, figs are sweet fruits and delicate flavor, rich in nutrients and very versatile in the kitchen, which lend themselves to endless combinations of sweet and savory. Good to taste paired with cheeses or meats, are at their best when they are used as an ingredient for cakes, pies or other specialty patisserie. But the real treat that sees them protagonists is actually jam, perfect to enjoy for breakfast, spread on bread, or as a filling for cakes. Delicious in a jam!
