PRODUCE
  • Some consider figs the Holy Grail of fruit. Fresh brown turkey figs are available just in time for the holidays at all four Straub's locations.

    Some  consider  figs  the  ‘Holy  Grail’  of  fruit – classical references are many. Figs are said to be discovered by Dionysius and the thunderbolts of Jupiter. They are referenced as the tree of knowledge in the bible along with the loss of innocence and the pleasures of Paradise. Thomas Jefferson brought fig trees to Monticello upon his return from France. None-the-less figs are an exotic treasure and a culinary trophy. They are also an excellent source of potassium and dietary fiber. Fresh brown turkey figs are available just in time for the holidays at all four Straub’s locations. Hurry in and try some for yourself!

    How to Eat Fresh Figs

    Figs are usually eaten whole—skin and all. Wash the fresh figs in cool water. Since figs possess a delicate skin and flesh, be careful not to bruise them. Cut off the small stem with a sharp knife.  There is no need to cut the fig into smaller pieces or to remove the seeds. Simply pop the fig into your mouth and enjoy!

    TIPS

    • Try to eat fresh figs within two days.
    • Store figs in the refrigerator.
    • To keep your figs firm, store them on a paper-towel lined plate.
    • Cover figs with plastic wrap to keep them moist.

    PREPARATION SUGGESTIONS

    • Wrap figs with thin pieces of cooked pancetta (Italian bacon) for a sweet and savory snack.
    • Stuff figs with chopped almonds and mascarpone cheese for a delicious appetizer.
    • Chop figs and add them to oatmeal or a salad.
