Dried Figs - Figs are perfect for snacking on the go and are great for lunch boxes. Add them to porridge and cereals, your favourite trail mix, or use them in muesli bars and raw food recipes. Dried figs can be paired beautifully with a wide variety of delectable cheeses and look fantastic on any platter or with mixed nuts. For cooking or baking, dried figs can be soaked in boiling water or lightly steamed to reconstitute.
