Fig jam. The jam is actually pretty good. It's still too figgy for me, but I know some fig-loving people who adore the stuff. And when combined with a bunch of peanut butter and smashed between some bread, it's actually kinda good.
Cooked down, they make a marvelous jam that intensifies that sweetness. My neighbor told me that her mother used to make fig preserves with lemon thinly sliced in them so after making this recipe I gave her a jar of them with a pan of hot biscuits straight from the oven. Wipe jar rims and threads with a wet paper towel. You can cook Fig jam using 4 ingredients and 3 steps. This is how you cook it.

Fig jam step by step
- Wash your figs and cut in pieces.
- Boil FIGS lemon juice and sugar together for one hour then let cool over night..
Let cool to room temperature, then refrigerate. Fig preserves are better when they are not bland! Did not have extra lemon juice so just used my last lemon and sliced thin. Also used ground ginger since that is what I had. Can't wait to make another batch while my fig tree is producing.
