Figs, Calimyrna Dried

Calimyrna Figs, Dried
(Figs, Calimyrna Dried) According to one source, Calimyrna figs have a delicate, nut-like flavor, which we have not noticed, but the flavor is still good; however, we believe that the dried Kalamata figs have a better taste. When dried, the Calimyrna turn golden tan, as seen in the photo. The Calimyrna fig were originally grown in Turkey where it was called the Smyrna fig, for the famous ancient Turkish city. When California growers began cultivating this fig, they changed the name to Calimyrna. We could not find and specific nutritional information for Calimyrna figs.

Vegan FlagThe above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31): 'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so. God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV) Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
