How to make Quick Fig Jam
This recipe will work with all kinds of fruit (blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, etc.), but Mama Redbuck has a fig tree in her backyard, so she mostly uses figs when making this quick jam. If you don’t have fresh fruit handy in the neighborhood where you live, just buy fresh fruit at the market.
Buy figs that are a little soft, color can be a good indication, but not always, sometimes even the greener figs can be soft enough, so give figs a squeeze to test for squishiness. Once picked, figs don’t last very long, maybe 2 days when ripe. You can keep fresh figs in the fridge, but they won’t keep for very long after becoming soft, only a couple of days, so making a jam is an easy way to extend their life another 7-10 days. My mom seals extra fig jam in bags and freezes it for future use.
Wash figs and remove the stem.
Quarter and then chop the figs as desired. We like a rustic, chunky jam.
Heat a medium-sized saucepan on low heat.
Add figs, sugar, and honey and bring the pot to a simmer, stirring regularly.
As the pot bubbles away, the figs will release a lot of water.
Let the pot simmer until the mixture reaches your desired “jamminess”, this might take 10 to 20 minutes depending on how wet the figs are and how thick you like your jam.
The jam will thicken even more off of the heat, so don’t overcook the fruit; you want a spreadable jam, not a clunky fig paste.
If the jam becomes overly thick, you can always add a wee little bit of water back into the pot.
Remove the Jam from the heat and allow to cool before adding into a container.
The jam will keep in the fridge for about a week to 10 days, although a pint of jam
Disappears fairly quickly around our home, especially if we make some biscuits.
