    Antifreesz's Note:

    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.

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    ounces

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Place 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.
    2. 2
      Place in microwave.
    3. 3
      You will cook the fruit mixture on the high setting for approximately 15 minutes.
    4. 4
      As soon as the mixture starts to boil, after about 6 to 8 minutes, stop the cooking and stir.
    5. 5
      Continue cooking and stir every few minutes. At about 13 minutes the mixture should start to get viscous.
    6. 6
      If 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.
    7. 7
      If it is runny, cook it a couple minutes more.
    8. 8
      You 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.
    9. 9
      If 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.

      I had a dozen or so figs that needed to be used right away so decided to adapt this recipe to fit ingredients on hand. I used 3 cups of diced mission figs and 2 cups of sugar. I doubled the ginger and cinnamon but left the cloves at 1/4 t. I had no orange, but used the zest and juice from one lemon. I stirred it every 5 minutes for a total of 15 minutes in the microwave, stirred in the 1/2 t. butter at the end, then poured it into a covered glass jar and put it in the fridge. It got very thick. We tasted it last night and we think it tastes expensive, like something from a gourmet shop. I will make this again. Easy and good. I am going to try it with crackers and some mild cheese.

      This jam was very tasty! I love the spicy flavor - it reminds me of the holidays! We don't use a lot of jams, so this will last us a long time, and I look forward to finding different uses. Thank you.

      The flavor of this fig jam is outstanding!! I used fresh brown turkey figs and omitted the butter; the rest was as written. I have used this jam to adorn waffles and spinach salad with feta cheese and pecans. A friend of mine suggested putting it over bread pudding too. Thank you, Antifreesz for a great fig jam!
