Organic Fig Paste - US / Turkish blend

Fig paste is made from clean, wholesome organic dried figs grown in California and / or Turkey. 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 retorted, washed and ground through a grinder with a plate that has inside diameter openings of 7/64 in maximum. After exiting the grinder, the fig paste is processed to crush the seeds and stem pieces. The paste is metal detected immediately prior to casing at 1.5 mm Fe and 2.0 mm stainless steel. This is a natural product that does not contain additives, preservatives and or processing aids. 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!
