Fig paste

Fig paste is made from clean, wholesome dried figs grown in California. The figs come from the fig tree (Ficus Carica), are naturally sun-dried in the orchard, then mechanically harvested. The fruit is sorted and thoroughly cleaned to ensure sound product. The figs are washed and ground through a grinder with a plate that has inside diameter openings of 7/64 in maximum. The paste is metal detected immediately prior to casing at 1.5 mm Fe and 2.0 mm stainless steel. Please note: the color of the paste may be lighter/darker depending on the current blend of light and dark varieties of figs. Please note any specific desires and we will see what we can customize for you! This item is perfect for a baking inclusion!
