Have a fondness for figs? You’re going to love Fig Butter! Trader Joe’s version is so smooth and delicious.
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.
Get a couple slices or wedges of your favorite cheese. I love Laughing Cow.
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.
