Thousand-year-old cultures, from Egyptians to Romans, were aware of the goodness of the fig tree fruit. Figs were the remedy against many diseases and unfailing energy source, thanks to their nutritional quality.
In Extremadura, fruits are selected, one by one, and then mixed with walnuts and spices, achieving our spectacular Fig Bread Olmeda Origenes.
They are ideal as dessert or accompanying cheeses and dried fruits. They are also wonderful as a snack with marmalade and perfectly matched with a sweet wine, such as Pedro Ximenez.
