For us " askada " is much more than two figs together. It represents our childhood memories and our effort to create
the same "askades" as "Grandma Sofia" and "Aunt Katina". And we think, now that we are grown up, the "well
done" that we heard was the reward for the remembrance and the taste.
Why " askada " for us means a hug and a match ...
Askada: from the ancient name for figs, 'ischada'.
The process of collecting, processing, drying in the sun, " thermization", drying again, and standardization of figs,
is done entirely by hand.
The excellent final product is the result of a multi-stage process, time-consuming and laborious .
The result, however, and the distinct flavor that leaves us the askada fig, is hiding inside ... a myth !
