Honeyed Figs With Sweet Red Wine and Lavender Jam

Recipe by Rita1652

No Pectin jam. This can be spread on you favorite bread/ toast! It is a thinner jam which makes it great to glaze a chicken, duck, pork roast at the end of cooking. Or to serve as a condiment with the choice of roasted or grilled meats. Top a slice of cheese cake or scoop of ice cream with some for an elegant dessert.

Great, unique flavors and superb technique! I used cheap dry red wine, was no worse for it.

  1. In a coffee grinder place 1 tablespoon sugar and lavender, and process to make the lavender into fine bits. The sugar will become somewhat powdered.
  2. Place into a large heavy bottom pot.
  3. Place the figs and remaining sugar, into the processor and pulse 5 to 6 times just to a coarse chop: add to large pot with honey, wine, lemon juice and zest.
  4. Heating to a slow boil then raise heat to a fast rolling boil for 15 minutes stirring most the time. At this point you`ll see the juice turn vibrant red.
