Purees & Pastes

Fig Puree

The Fig is a temperate species native to southwest Asia and the Mediterranean region (from Afghanistan to Portugal) which has been widely cultivated from ancient times for its fruit. Figs can be eaten fresh or dried, and used in jam-making. Most commercial production is in dried or otherwise processed forms, since the ripe fruit does not transport well, and once picked does not keep well. Dried figs are a rich source of dietary fiber and the essential dietary mineral, manganese.

Guava Puree

Guavas, sometimes known as Apple Guavas, received its name because its coloring is so similar to that of a green apple, with hues of lemon and lime. The fruit is roughly spherical with a furrowed smooth surface. The most alluring element of a Guava is its fragrance, a bouquet of bright tropical aromatics. The flesh is unique to many fruits, its texture a combination of a firm banana with the succulence of an apple. Tiny edible seeds pattern the flesh’s core. The flavor of Guava is a reflection of its aromatics, though more subtle with notes of pineapple, papaya, banana and lemon.
