Stonewall Kitchen White Fig Spread
Figs are a unique and delicious fruit with a distinctive, almost honey-like taste and crunchy seeds. It's interesting to note that edible figs are one of the first plants cultivated by humans, were widespread in ancient Greece and were a common food source for the Romans and for good reason—they're delicious! A distant cousin within the mulberry family, figs have a wonderful hearty texture with an enjoyable, sweet taste that's all their own.
So, what is a white fig, you ask?
Adriatic Figs are pale green to pale yellow figs and are sometimes called "white figs" for their light color, and in a bright sunshine they really can take on a white-ish hue. You may also see them sold as "candy-striped figs," so named when their exteriors are pale green-and-white striped. Pretty as they are on the outside, it's their bright pink to brilliant red insides that win all the attention and provide their extra-sweet-even-for-figs flavor.
Adriatic figs are harvested in June and again in August. Their super sweet nature means they work particularly well as a simple fruit dessert all on their own. If you need to jazz them up, serve them with a dollop of creme fraiche or mascarpone cheese. They are also delicious sliced or chopped served on ice cream or plain, unsweetened yogurt.
