A naturally sweet, nutrition-packed chewy delight. Figs have a relatively short season in Europe, but these organic dried figs bring the taste of summer to the table year-round. Good in salads, tagines or alongside a strong, creamy goat’s cheese.

Try using them instead of dates in this raw parsnip salad, or this saffron poached chicken with cauliflower couscous.

Storage

Dried fruits are best kept somewhere cool and dry. Once you’ve opened the pack, put your dried fruit into a sealed, airtight container.

If you want it to last even longer, dried fruit is perfectly happy in the freezer. Just put the fruit in a sealed freezer bag first.

Grower Info

For over 30 years, ProNatura have been coordinating production and providing support for small-scale organic farmers – initially in their native France, and now further afield in Morocco, Togo, Burkina Faso and more (where the growers are also Fairtrade). They offer all sorts of expert advice and resources: from practical and financial support in becoming organically certified, and help promoting soil fertility and choosing the best varieties to grow in each region, to assistance in storing and packaging the final results.

Their fresh fruit has been such a smash hit at Riverford that Guy even went out to Togo to meet ProNatura’s organic, Fairtrade pineapple growers for himself – see more in this video.
