Glace Figs

Glace figs also known as candied figs, are incredibly sweet and delicious and are the perfect indulgent treat. Candied fruits are particularly popular during Autumn and Winter months around the festive period.They can be enjoyed in a number of ways - either take straight out the bag and enjoy as they are or add to recipes such as bread and cake decorations.

How are the figs candied?

Whole figs have been immersed in sugar syrup (a syrup formed by dissolving granulated sugar in hot water). The figs are left to simmer for a minimum of two hours before being placed in the oven at a low temperature to dry out. Once removed from the oven, the figs are then air dried for an additional hour before being packaged.

This process preserves the life of the fruit, extending it and making them even more enjoyable. If the fruits begin to harden over time you can simply place in a simple sugar syrup at home to soften and rehydrate the fruit before using.
