  4. Add sugar and mix
  5. Leave to macerate for 1 to 2 hour (s)

Cooking fig jam:

The cooking is finally quite fast but must be supervised because it can vary according to the level of maturity of the figs.

  • Before cooking, add the vanilla bean (this is not necessary but it gives a special flavor)
  • Pour in the lemon juice
  • Cook for about 20 minutes
  • Stir from time to time

To see if the fig jam is cooked, just put some jam on a cold plate and see if it freezes. If so, it is good for potting.

  • Once cooked, fill each pot to level, close and turn them over until completely cooled.

This jam is obviously ideal on a slice of bread but also try it with foie gras or with goat or sheep tome and you will be won over ...

Enjoy your meal !
