  • Dried figs

    Dried figs are the dried forms of the fig fruit, which grows on the fig tree, scientifically known as Ficus carica. While fresh figs are quite popular for their juicy, luscious texture, they are rather delicate fruits and are only available for a short time each year. Fresh figs are only good for 1-2 weeks after they are harvested, and are best consumed within a few days. Dried figs, on the other hand, can be savored throughout the year.
  • Sun-dried peppers

    Sun-Dried Red Peppers. Red peppers, salted and dried in the sun for an intense flavour. Tunisian sundried red peppers are dried the old fashioned way, on nets hanging out in the sun-drenched farming region of Cap Bon, Northern Tunisia. They are widely used for antipasti, canapes, salads, pasta and paninis.
  • chickpea

    Chickpeas are versatile legumes used in many Mediterranean, Middle Eastern and Indian cuisines. Round and tan colored, chickpeas have a mild, nutty flavor and are slightly crunchy even after cooking. Most famously, chickpeas are the basis for hummus, which is made by soaking and then pureeing the raw chickpeas along with tahini sauce (a sort of peanut butter made from sesame seeds), garlic and lemon juice.
  • Sun-dried Tomatoes

    Sun-dried tomatoes are ripe tomatoes that lose most of their water content after spending a majority of their drying time in the sun. These tomatoes are usually pre-treated with sulfur dioxide or salt before being placed in the sun in order to improve quality.
