Did You Know?

There are over 600 types of figs and almost as many ways
to prepare them! This fruit can be eaten whole and raw,
cooked, or stored as jam. Figs are commonly dried and
used in cooking. They contain fiber, potassium, and calcium.
Try pairing them with rice pudding for a light dessert, or
stuff with goat cheese and drizzle with balsamic vinegar to
serve as appetizers for holiday parties.
