Recipe type: Condiment, Dessert
Cuisine: American
Serves: 1 cup
  • 8 figs, quartered (I used black mission figs)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • options
  • pinch of cinnamon, 1-2 teaspoon lemon juice,
  1. In a small saucepan add figs, sugar, and water to a boil.
  2. Close to the time, it's finished cooking, add the vanilla.
  3. Simmer until the fruit is soft, the "jam" is thickening a bit and sticks to the back of a spoon and it not runny, I use a thermometer, cook the jam until it reaches 220°F.
  4. The jam will thicken as it cools.
