Quinta do Freixo Spiced Fig Croquette - 4 pcs
While visiting Portugal, we came upon Quinta do Freixo at the SISAB event in Lisbon. We tasted and selected a few of their wonderful jams for import, but what we didn't discover until later was their spiced fig cake and croquettes!
Unlike anything else we've found, these petite croquettes have a unique interplay of flavors: rich fig flavor creates the delicious backdrop to a blend of crushed almonds and sugary fennel. We pack this item with four croquettes per order.
