The big fig slurry.

Fresno, Calif.-based Valley Fig Growers has introduced Fig Slurry, a pumpable and pourable fig filling. Also available in organic form, Fig Slurry is textured similar to fruit jams and is ideal for sauces, marinades, dressings and foods where a more pliable fig paste is desired. Fig Slurry can add fruit flavor ranging from a hint of sweet to an intense, rich lusty fruit flavor, depending on the desired product profile. It is available in 5- and 55-gallon containers. Established in 1959, Valley Fig Growers is the largest handler of figs in North America and represents one half of California's fig industry. www.valleyfig.com; (559) 237-3983 x106.
