Whole Fig Jam

IMG_4413 IMG_4418

This week I opted for the Figs, I love Figs, whether dry, fresh or cooked.

I bought only 8 figs (the green are much better for this recipe).


  • 8 fresh figs
  • 500g of  white granulated sugar


  1. Wash and drain your figs (keep the skin).
  2. In a cooking pot add 250g of white granulated sugar in the bottom of your pot , add your figs on the top of the sugar and pour the rest of the sugar on the top of the figs.
  3. Marinate overnight.
  4. The following morning, pour with water just to cover your figs and cook very slowly on low heat without stirring.
  5. From time to time rotate your pot until the syrup becomes thick but the figs stay firm. It takes 2 hours cooking.
  6. Remove from the heat and allow to cool for 30 minutes.
  7. Add the figs in a dessert bowl and pour syrup on the top of it.

This recipe is for a small conservation, there is no preservative (you can keep it in the fridge for 2 weeks ).
Usually it is the same weigh of figs and same weigh of sugar. I prefer to add half of sugar, the figs are usually a sweet enough.

Bon Appetit.
