Fig Jam Recipe

This fig jam recipe is so easy to prepare. It actually came as a surprise. We have fig trees in our garden and during season time we harvest so many that we do not know what to do with them. My mother actually recommended a fig jam recipe to use up all the leftover figs. Figs are also delicious in salads too and a great companion to parma ham, you can see this fig jam recipe with parma ham. What also makes this fig jam recipe great is that it stores well.

In a large saucepan, place all ingredients and bring to a boil until the sugar dissolves, stirring occasionally. Reduce the heat to low and cook the figs, uncovered and continue to stir occasionally, for 30-60 minutes or until the liquid is thick and sticky and drops heavily from the spoon.
Remove from heat and discard the vanilla pod and cinnamon stick. For a chunky jam, gently mush large pieces of figs with a fork or potato masher.
for a smoother jam, process in a food processor. Spoon jam into sterilised jars, leaving ¼ inch space and close tight with the lid.
Let it cool to room temperature, then refrigerate.
Store the jam in the refrigerator for up to 2 months..
