Fig Butter from Trader Joe’s

by

Have a fondness for figs? You’re going to love Fig Butter! Trader Joe’s version is so smooth and delicious.

TRADER JOES FIG BUTTER ON CHEESE
Trader Joe’s Fig Butter. Great with cheese!


Does Fig Butter have butter?

Nope. The jar says for a spread to be considered “butter” it has to contain more fruit than sugar. Ah! I learned something new today. It’s like a jam or a fruit spread, only smoother and more spreadable. This one we got from Trader Joe’s used the finest, freshest ingredients and did not have artificial coloring or preservatives.

How can we enjoy Fig Butter?

Ooh la la. Here’s how I enjoy using it at home. Mmmmmm.

NO FIG BUTTER YET
Get a couple slices or wedges of your favorite cheese. I love Laughing Cow.

FIG BUTTER AND CHEESE
Is your jar of Fig Butter nearby? Good.

OPEN IT UP
Open up this jar of yumminess. Getting excited yet?

ON A SPOON
Resist putting a spoonful directly into your mouth.

TRADER JOES ON CHEESE
Top your cheese with the fabulous buttery goodness of figs. Happy snack!

It’s also great on its own with toast. I’ve also tried spreading cheese thinly on toast, then spreading butter over it. Delicious. (Obviously I like figs and cheese!)

We got our Fig Butter from Taste Central (https://tastecentral.com/food/all/482-fabulous-fig-butter). It cost Php315.00. It’s a good deal! It could also be good on pancakes or waffles. Maybe even a salad. How about oatmeal? What if you use it as a glaze for roast chicken? Oh yum.

Is this treat something you’d like to try too? Have you tried it before? How did you use it? Share tips and tricks on using Fig Butter please!

    I immediately thought of two things to:
    1. eat the cheese and fig butter with crackers while drinking wine.
    2. spread the fig butter on scones while having tea

      It’s so tempting to do that!! Then again I do practically the same thing by putting spoonfuls of it on my toast. 😛

    I ate a sandwich with prosciutto, fig jam and goat cheese. It was super yummy.

      Hi Ann! That’s a great idea. I’ll try it with prosciutto next time. I love prosciutto! Thanks for sharing.

    I love fig! I remember eating Fig Newtons as my after-school snack with my Lola when I was a kid. :) I hope there are still stocks 😀
