Dried Figs

I found these guys at the grocery store today while on a hunt for dried apples. They were located by the raisins, craisins, and other dried fruit. They were on sale, so I thought I would give them a try. I have never really ate figs, unless you count Fig Newtons. I was pleasantly surprised! They have a really complex taste and texture. The inside is full of tiny seeds, but so small they don't bother your teeth. There is a weird stumpy end that I just toss to the dogs. I am not sure how to use them in cooking, but they are fabulous for snacking. Ultra high in fiber. I would really suggest you try them! I bought ones that came in a resealable plastic pouch, Orchard Choice Brand Mission Figlets.
