About Dried Figs, Golden Calimyrna

Calimyrna Figs are a sweet fig variety that is a light green color when fresh and a golden amber color when dried. They have a taste that is earthy and sweet like honey with warm nutty notes. They are a beautiful, flavorful dried fruit with many versatile uses in sweet and savory cooking.

Both fresh and dried fig fruits have been a staple food for many cultures because of the easy cultivation of fig trees, and the plentiful harvests they offer. They are mentioned in the Bible, and have been cultivated by ancient cultures in Egypt, Greece, Rome, and Northern Africa in what is now Morocco. Calimyrna Golden Figs were first called Smyrna figs after the region of Turkey in which they were originally grown. Unlike some fig varieties that have a brighter, fruitier, taste; the golden fig has an earthier, nuttier flavor that works well in many savory dishes.

Stuff them with goat or sheep cheese and crushed walnuts for a light but flavorful appetizer. Or simmer them in water, red wine, or juice to make them soft and plump and ideal for sauces, marinades, chutneys, and glazes. Like Black Mission figs and other varieties, Calimyrna figs also work well in cookies, muffins, and baking. They are also delicious when blended with rice or quinoa, spices, and chicken or duck in pilafs.

Dried figs remain fresh for at least a month at room temperature, and up to one year in a refrigerator.
