Found this super easy tasty recipe for Fig Jam in Bon Appetit magazine this month. I definitely preferred the taste more the day after it was jarred and refrigerated. And the original recipe used black mission figs I believe, but I had green ones so I used those.
Put 1/2 cup honey or sorghum syrup in a medium sauce pan and bring to a simmer.
Add 1tsp orange zest, 2 whole sprigs of thyme, and a pinch of salt.
Stir and continue to simmer for a minute.
Add 1lb of stemmed and quartered fresh figs (any type will do).
Simmer for 5-10 minutes depending on the softness of the figs
and that they retain their shape.
Let cool and put in a storage container or jar into the fridge. VOILA!
I had mine on toast with peanut butter this morning, it was sooo tasty! I loved
the savory accents from the thyme and earthy sweetness.
