The edible fig is one of the first plants that was cultivated by humans. Nine subfossil figs dating to about 9400–9200 BCE were found in the early Neolithic village in the Jordan Valley.
Rich in taste, figs are also known as Anjeer are a sweet and nutritious dried fruit that can be enjoyed throughout the year. Its sweet, delicious flesh, long used as a sweetener before the advent of refined sugars, enhances both savoury dishes and desserts.
Dried figs can simply be eaten, used in a recipe as is, or simmered for several minutes in water or fruit juice to make them plumper and juicier. Add a few dried figs while preparing oatmeal or any other whole grain breakfast porridge. Figs are among the richest plant sources of calcium and fibre. Besides fibre, dried figs are also rich in copper, manganese, magnesium, potassium and vitamin K while being low in fats and cholesterol. Figs are an excellent source of potassium, a mineral that helps to control blood pressure. They contain soluble dietary fibre which creates a sense of fullness in the stomach thus aiding weight loss.
