Culinary Delights: Turkish Figs

One of my favourite snacks is dry figs. Not fresh ones — I’m not a fan. But dry ones. And the best dry ones are out right now: Turkish. I’ve had figs from all over but the dried figs from Turkey — which are just in season now — are by far the best. Head and shoulders better in my opinion than any others. I have no idea why they’re so good, but they’re like candy — yet healthier. And at just 100 calories for 3 of them a treat that even someone trying to watch the old calories can appreciate.

Oh, they also make a wicked dried fruit for power bars or cookies. A mix of dates and Turkish figs and you’ve got a wicked dessert bar or cookie.
