Fig Heaven Jam
Here is my new recipe which I hope that you will try.
- 4 cups fresh figs
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup honey (sage honey is best)
- Zest of two medium navel oranges
- 1/4 cup bottled lemon juice
- 1 1/2 T. Ball no sugar/low sugar pectin
In a small dutch oven or stainless steel pot add quartered figs, sugar and zest of oranges. Bring mixture up to a simmer for 10 minutes stirring occasionally.
Add honey and lemon juice. Continue to simmer for 10 minutes then bring to boil. Add pectin and return to a boil for one minute.
Ladle fig jam into 4 half pint sterilized jars. Make sure to fill leaving 1/4" headspace. Remove air bubbles, refilling if needed.
Wipe rims and add hot lids and rings. Process in a water bath at a full boil for 10 minutes. Remove and let cool on a dish towel overnight. Check jars the next day for seal. Remove rings and store in pantry.
