A figgy, rich & sweet organic fig syrup – clean & pure!
In the middle of the Aegean Sea & the rich biodiversity within landscapes, an organic fig farm was created in Kymi, on the Greek island of Evia. The “Askada Farm”, inspired by the word Askada that in the local dialect describes the delicacy occurring from the “marriage” of 2 opened sundried figs of Kymi.
For Evaggelia & Stathis, the couple behind “Askada Farm”, the source of inspiration is their passion for the exquisite fig of Kymi, which is one of the main elements of the “Mediterranean Diet” since antiquity. Their aim is to highlight the unique characteristics & the fascinating process required to create an “Askada Fig”, in the middle of the Greek summer with the contribution of the Aegean breeze. They are dedicated to offer the most delicious sundried figs & to produce exceptional products that combine inspiration & culinary culture!
This “Organic Fig Syrup” (“Sikomelo” in Greek, meaning fig’s honey) is a new & unique product even for the Greek market. Having been forgotten for years once was used by previous generations as a natural sweetener. It is the 100% pure extract of “Askada Farm’s” carefully selected organic dried figs without the addition of any sweeteners or preservatives. Try this versatile syrup on baked goods & breakfast treats, such as waffles & pancakes. Trickle a little over ice cream, yoghurt or fresh fruits. Let this rich syrup complement your green salads’ dressing, risotto or naturally sweeten your drinks. Simply drizzle on cheese & enjoy!
