Make It

Tap or click steps to mark as complete

  • Bring boiling-water canner, half full with water, to simmer. Wash jars and screw bands in hot soapy water; rinse with warm water. Pour boiling water over flat lids in saucepan off the heat. Let stand in hot water until ready to use. Drain well before filling.
  • Trim stem ends from figs. Finely chop or grind fruit. Measure exactly 2-1/2 cups prepared fruit into 6- or 8-qt. saucepot. Stir in water and lemon juice.
  • Mix 1/4 cup of the sugar (from the measured amount in the bowl) and pectin in small bowl. Add to fruit in saucepot; mix well. Add butter to reduce foaming. Bring mixture to full rolling boil (a boil that doesn't stop bubbling when stirred) on high heat, stirring constantly. Stir in remaining 3-1/4 cups sugar. Return to full rolling boil and boil exactly 1 min., stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Skim off any foam with metal spoon.
  • Ladle immediately into prepared jars, filling to within 1/4 inch of tops. Wipe jar rims and threads. Cover with two-piece lids. Screw bands tightly. Place jars on elevated rack in canner. Lower rack into canner. (Water must cover jars by 1 to 2 inches. Add boiling water, if necessary.) Cover; bring water to gentle boil. Process 10 min. Remove jars and place upright on towel to cool completely. After jars cool, check seals by pressing middles of lids with finger. (If lids spring back, lids are not sealed and refrigeration is necessary.)

    This is a perfect fig jam recipe particularly for those who have a fig tree or two. Only requiring 2 1/2 cups of fruit makes this doable for store bought figs as well. The recipe is perfect and I had amazing results the first time. One word of caution, this recipe sets very quickly, so I grabbed an extra pair of hands to help speed up the process.

    I made it using Splenda and no sugar. It was just as good, but has only 8 calories per TBSP.
