Ingredients list

  • 300 g figs
  • 125 g sugar
  • 15 ml lemon juice
  • 4 g lemon zest
  • 20 ml water

Directions

  • First, thoroughly wash the figs, peel them and remove the stems. Then cut into quarters and set aside.
  • Now grate approx. 4g (0.1oz) of zest from a well-washed organic lemon and set aside. Squeeze the lemon and collect the required 15ml (1tbsp) juice.
  • Now put the figs in a cooking pot with the extracted lemon juice, lemon zest, sugar and water.
  • Heat the mixture, stirring constantly, and simmer for about 10 minutes. Skim off the foam that forms on the surface with the help of a skimmer.
  • Then remove from heat and leave to cool. On the surface should form a thin skin, which must be mixed with the jam.
  • Now fill the lukewarm jam into disinfected preserving jars. Make sure that 1 cm of air is kept free from the lid. Screw on the disinfected lids tightly, but not too tightly. The heat from the jam will create a vacuum, which will preserve the product for a long time. Then allow to cool completely.
  • The fig jam is now ready and can be enjoyed.
    Buon appetito!

My tip

The jam can be stored in a vacuum, dry and dark place for about 3 months.
