Fig and Lime Jam

We tested this recipe with not-too-sweet Brown Turkey figs; if using sweeter Black Mission figs, you may need to decrease the sugar. The mashed fig mixture can stand as long as overnight.

Cooking Light JUNE 2010

  • Yield: 4 cups (serving size: 2 tablespoons)

Ingredients

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice (about 3 limes)
  • 2 pounds fresh Brown Turkey figs, cut into (1/4-inch) pieces (about 6 cups)

Preparation

1. Combine all ingredients in a large heavy saucepan; mash fig mixture with a potato masher until combined. Let stand 2 hours. Bring mixture to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat; simmer 35 minutes or until mixture begins to thicken slightly, stirring occasionally. Cool completely. Cover and chill overnight.
