Mymouné Sundried Fig Preserves
This dense, intensely flavored Lebanese Sundried Fig Jam is perfectly balanced and only moderately sweet. It consists of 75% fruit, so you can taste all the richness of the figs. We like how the decadent, warm sweetness is accented and made more interesting by subtle savory notes from aniseed, while the sesame seeds in the jam enhance the figs' natural texture. This thick, decadent fig jam also has chunks of fruit for a more satisfying bite. Spread it with butter or ricotta on toast or in a sandwich. You can also feature it on a cheese tray, paired with creamy goat cheese, or even add a little to a meat stew to balance heavier flavors. Or smear a little between layers of carrot cake along with cardamom-scented cream cheese frosting.
Straight out of the town of Ain el Kabou, Lebanon, at the foot of Mount Sannine, family-run company Mymouné has been producing its award-winning artisanal fruit preserves and specialties for 30 years. Started by two sisters during the Lebanese Civil War as an effort to support their home village, the company makes all of its products completely by hand using traditional methods, from cooking fresh local fruit in small batches to hand-filling jars of preserves. You'll never get any artificial colors or preservatives from Mymouné—just the pure, vibrant flavors of the Middle East.
