Ingredients:- Figs - Dried. These Turkish Figs are Preservative Free, sun dried, then washed, dipped in brine, re-dried and hand shaped (“Lerida” means ‘flattened into a disk by hand’). As Figs dry, sugars in the fruit crystallize on the surface giving a white frosty appearance. This is natural and preserves the fruit, for Figs are almost 50% sugar. (Added Preservatives such as sulfites or potassium sorbate inhibit this, and allow the fruit to retain up to 30% more water, giving you less value for money. These natural, additive-free figs contain less water, their flavour and nutrients are more concentrated and they give you up to 30% more fruit for your money.
