I made two batches of this today. I added a little ginger. The first batch I made I did not cut up the figs, second go around I gave them a good buzz with my hand held blender. I think I prefer the chunky style of the uncut...but I needed to try. Great recipe, very easy and yummy. I love fig jam with goat cheese on crackers.
