ingredients

directions

  • Place figs in pot and add the sugar, lemon juice, lemon zest, cinnamon and salt.
  • Combine ingredients and begin mashing them using a potato masher or fork. They should mash quite easily if they are ripe. (You can also use a blender) Leaving little chunks is nice to give the jam more interest.
  • Turn heat to medium high and bring to a strong simmer. Stir occasionally.
  • Cover the pot and turn the heat down so that the fig mixture simmers steadily for 1 hour.
  • Give the mixture an occasional stir and make sure it does not burn or scorch. This is especially important in the last 1/2 hour. You'll see it begin to thicken.
  • After an hour, remove the cover and cook for another 5-10 minutes or until the jam is thick.
  • Cool completely - it will continue to thicken as it cools.
  • Fill your containers and freeze the ones you want to use later.
