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.

How to Make It

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.

I cut the sugar in half because I don't like it too sweet and it is delicious. Yummy with cheese and bread.

This turned out very good. Mine was a goregous magenta color - I must have gotten black figs? I actually cut back on some sugar and added stevia. Also, I pulsed the figs in the food processor so it is actually less chunky than the picture. Great with cheese and a cracker or bread.
