Home Made Fig Jam
My Grandmothers fig preserves includes whole chunks of figs which have been cooked until they have been mellowed.
Her recipe, is quite old, and tried and tested time and time again. Fig trees were abundantly commonplace throughout Gibraltar when I was growing up, so this recipe was, I assume, made during the peak of the summer season, when figs were at their sweetest.
My Grandfather would regularly use this jam as his breakfast staple, and would smile at my grandmother, and tell her she bottled the “taste of summer” every time.
I hope you try this recipe out, as it’s well worth the 30-40 minutes out of your busy schedule to try it.
