How to Make Fig Jam – Fig Jam Recipe

Easy Fig Jam Recipe

While figs are in season, decided to share an easy fig jam recipe. The best part about figs, is that originally the figs are super sweet and don’t require too much sugar. I’m sure you’ll be able to replace the sugar with honey or agave to make it even healthier. I’ll do a couple of tests and may even come up with a recipe, but not until next season.

For now let’s try this easy fig jam recipe and be sure to save some when you make it. I’ll be writing a fig tart recipe, where I’m planning to use this jam as a base. If you’re following my Facebook or instagram, you should see my recipe test results and also my other daily food picks.




Let’s get to the recipe and good luck!
