Unlike like ordinary dried figs, these unique fruits are naturally tough in texture. Due to their toughness, they are best enjoyed when soaked in water or milk for added softness. Soaking them will not only make them softer to eat but will also give your milk or water a deliciously sweet taste!
Figs grow on the ficus tree and are a member of the mulberry family. There are over 700 species of fig trees, so good thing you know Ayoub to pick the right ones.
