Corsican Fig Jam

Fig jam, whether it is whole, white, barbaric, walnuts, hazelnuts or pine nuts, is simply a joy for the taste buds. As sweet as it is tasty, Corsican fig jam is the guarantee of a beautiful breakfast with southern flavours. The fruits used to make these jams are selected among the most beautiful and the most walled in order to restore this unique taste and to obtain an exceptional fig jam.

Delicious ways to enjoy it

Fig jam is usually enjoyed like any jam, at lunch, at the snack, on a slice of bread, with yogurt or on pancakes... It is also an excellent choice of quality to taste your foie gras, goat cheese or sheep cheese. It also goes very well with white meat, I tested a recipe for chicken with fig jam, it's a delight!

Sun, fig and jam

As you should know, the climate is the key to getting an exceptionally rich fruit of flavor, plus the variety used when making a jam will have a taste impact. This is why Corsica is recognized throughout the world, not only for its know-how and tradition but of course for the quality of these products. The fig jam made by our enthusiasts, I named Charles Antona and Tony Orsini, is the assurance of an authentic product certified by the islanders.

The fig tree as emblematic as the vine

The fig tree is a fruit tree that gives edible "fruits" called figs. It is usually 3 to 4 metres high and can live up to 300 years. The fig tree blooms in spring and summer, but the flowers are invisible. The pollination of the fig tree is therefore a bit special, this is where the "fig wasp" comes in. To summarize quickly, the female wasp enters the male figs to deposit its larvae. Once in, the wasp can no longer go out and will therefore die to allow the larvae to continue the cycle. This is how the loop is closed and the pollination of figs becomes possible. Interesting, isn't it?

The Corsican fig

Fig, the fruit of the fig tree, is not really a fruit in the botanical sense of the word. There are figs of different colors and flavors: white, black, red, violet, or even bicolor. The fig is eaten fresh or dry. Oscillating between tangy or sweeter flavours, its flesh is refreshing and creamy. Namely, the fig is rich in fibre, carbohydrates and protein. It is a nourishing fruit that is easy to digest.
