From Simply Recipes and it is wonderful. This makes small batches. You can use mild green or mission figs and is great as a dipping sauce too.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1 1/2 cups diced fresh figs (6-10 figs, depending on the size of the figs)
- 1/2 cup orange, seeded peeled diced
- 1 1/2 cups sugar (reduce if you want, though it won't set as well)
- 1 1/2 teaspoons orange peel, grated
- 3 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon butter
- 2 (8 ounce) canning jars
- 1Place the ingredients in a large ceramic or glass bowl or casserole (a 2-quart Pyrex measuring cup works great), stir to combine, let sit for 30 minutes for the fruit to macerate in the sugar.
- 2Place in microwave.
- 3You will cook the fruit mixture on the high setting for approximately 15 minutes.
- 4As soon as the mixture starts to boil, after about 6 to 8 minutes, stop the cooking and stir.
- 5Continue cooking and stir every few minutes. At about 13 minutes the mixture should start to get viscous.
- 6If you spoon out a bit on to a small plate that has been in the freezer, you can push the mixture around a bit with your finger tip to see how thick it is.
- 7If it is runny, cook it a couple minutes more.
- 8You can also check by seeing how the jam runs off of a spoon. If it seems to firm up a bit as it drips, it's done.
- 9If you use a large Pyrex measuring cup, you can see that you start with close to 3 cups of liquid. You want to boil it down to 2 cups.
