Dried Figs

The fig, a plant and fruit widely grown in Apulia, has become an interesting culinary art product, being not only a fruit, but a possible ingredient in numerous recipes, both traditional and completely innovative.

In the heart of Salento, the company 'le Primizie' dries figs according to a precise process that has been handed down from generation to generation. Thanks to natural drying (through exposure to the sun) and the characteristics of the land, the 'Fichi secchi del Salento', which we produce, are unique for their softness, pastiness and delicate taste.

Appreciated for their rich flavour and high energy value, dried figs have always been a fundamental ingredient in the diet of peasants (Mediterranean diet); today they represent a typical high quality gastronomic product that is sought after and precious.
