Homemade fig Jam



This post is so special to me. This jam is made from fresh figs from my neighbors backyard. I plucked each fig, cleaned, chopped , cooked and canned in 2 hours. This is the best jam I ever made too. Canning is very interesting if you do it right. The key to safe canning is two factors - acid and heat. Botulism simply can’t live in an acidic environment. The acid in jam comes from the fruit itself as well as added acid like lemon juice (some fruits are acidic enough on their own, but some need a bit of extra help in the form of lemon juice or other added acid).

Ingredients

30-40 Fresh Figs
1 Cup Sugar
1/2 Cup Honey
2Tbsp Lemon Juice (Juice from one lemon)



Directions


Step 1 : In a Dutch oven / wide nonstick pan add the cleaned and chopped figs(Do not add water) . Cook in low - medium flame for 15-20 minutes.

Step 2 : Add Sugar and honey and continue cooking. Mash them to break down into tiny chunks.

Step 3 : Cook till they are really thick. Add lemon juice , cook for a minute and turn off the flame.



Enjoy,
Lena
