There is this giant Fig tree in our backyard. Throughout the season, there's good pickings for months and months. The birds are also the frequent pickers, so have to get to them first. I pick some of them and put in the ziploc bag, store them in the freezer for future use. Now, making figs jam is easy. Just sugar, wine, vanilla extract and water and of course, figs.
1/2 full 9" x 9" pot
2 cups granulated sugar
2 cups Apple Cider
3 Tbsp Vanilla extract
1 cup White wine
Water to cover the whole figs
Just cook until the texture is like a jam. It is all about your preference, whether you like it thick or smooth or light or thin.
