Hey Friends!

I’ve been wanting to make fig jam for weeks now and had not gotten around to it! I finally got my dad to help and we made quite a bit of it! Yay!!

My friend Paulina suggested I use this recipe so I did and I even tweaked it to make a sugar-free version! Both turned out tasty and delicious. Or how I like to say “ Nutritious and Delicious”

I ended up canning them all so they would be preserved and ready for us to eat whenever! Yummy!

Recipe with sugar 

INGREDIENTS:

2 pounds of fresh figs ( approximately 40 small figs or 20 really big figs) cut in quarters and remove stems 

1 cup granulated sugar

Juice of 1 lemon. ( or about 2 Tbs) 

1 tsp vanilla

1/4 cup of water 


Place all ingredients minus the water in a saucepan and cook over medium heat until sugar is dissolved and figs start to open up. Mash them a bit if they're not softening. 

Once sugar is dissolved add water and simmer for 20 minutes on low heat. 

Spoon into jars ( should fill 4, 8oz jars) and seal tightly. Will store for up to 2 months refrigerator or you can preserve by canning in a hot bath for 10 minutes. This way they will be preserved for a year!
