Black Mission Figs have a tough blackish-purple peel, often cracking near the stem end upon ripeness, and exposing the sweet, strawberry-colored flesh beneath. When Black Mission Figs are blended with savory ingredients, such as salt, cocoa and spices, figs can produce a “meaty” flavor that has a smoky, almost steak-like aroma and taste. Once picked out of the garden, enjoy drying them, making jams, and mixing them into dessert batters, appetizers spreads, salads and more!
