Recipe of the month: Fig Jam from Lorraine De Bock

31 Aug 2022 10:23 | Deleted user

I am obsessed with figs and I’m very lucky to have a neighbor who let’s me pick as many figs off of his tree as long as I make him fig jam. I’d like to share an easy and tasty recipe for fig jam that goes well with bread, cheese and crackers. Enjoy!


  • 1 pound of figs, quartered and stems removed 
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons of lemon juice (juice of 1 small lemon)
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract (optional)

In a large, heavy-bottomed saucepan, combine the figs, sugar, lemon juice.

Bring to a simmer over medium-low heat, stirring constantly. Cover and simmer over low heat for 25 minutes, stirring occasionally.  

Let jam cool for 5-10 minutes and then spoon into 1/2 pint jars leaving 1/4 inch of space at the top. Close the jars and let cool to room temperature. Store the jam in the refrigerator for up to 2 months.
