Fig Jam


Fig-Amaretto Jam

4 cups fresh figs
1/3 c. lemon juice
5 3/4 c. sugar
1/3 c. Amaretto
1 pouch liquid pectin


Fig-Ginger Jam

4 cups fresh figs
1/3 c. lemon juice
5 3/4 c. sugar
1/2 c. Candied ginger pieces
1 pouch liquid pectin

The process is the same in these two recipes. Sterilize jars and lids.

Wash figs and cut off stems and any brown spots. Peeling is not necessary. Cut figs into pieces (6-8 pieces per fig) and place in a large bowl. Pour in sugar, lemon juice and flavoring component (Amaretto, ginger or liquor or spice of choice). Stir and let flavors get friendly for 15-20 minutes.

Put mixture into large pot and bring to a full rolling boil, stirring occasionally. Add pectin and stir one additional minute. Remove from heat. Skim off any foam. Fill jars.
Put lids and rings on jars tightly. Process for 10 minutes in large kettle of boiling water.

Yum! Lucky woman you are.


Wow...I want some!! They look great!!!


Wow -- those look and sound fabulous (like a little taste of Italy!)


Did you use the green figs in one and the black figs in the other? Or maybe mixed the two colors?

They sound yummy!


I made fig jam two summers ago - love it. I was hoping to make some this summer but not sure if I'll have a chance or not.
