Thank you to Krysten’s Kitchen for these festive Figgy Pudding Balls made with our delicious Fruit Bliss Organic Figs.
“I got the idea to do this while looking through my great-grandma’s box of recipes. There was a recipe in it for some kind of ball made with coconut, dates and nuts. While my recipes really have nothing to do with the one I found from the 50s, it got me thinking about how using dried fruits, nuts, seeds, and these types of ingredients is really timeless. A recipe like hers worked in the 50s and guess what? It still works today!” - Krysten
Fruit Bliss' Organic Dried Figs are Soft and Juicy! They are Non-GMO Project Verified, Vegan and Kosher. Their process is minimal as the fruit is dried in the sun and the only thing added is water to steam or dehydrate! Their fruit might seem darker in color, but that’s because they skip the preservatives and added chemicals that give other dried fruits a bright color.”
