Delicious scones with fig jam and cream. Yummy!

This is a beautiful fig jam. It is so delicious it was difficult to put the spoon down and get the jam in the jars. What makes it even more delicious is the fact that it it is so simple to make. It is really a no fuss jam.


3kg figs, skinned and chopped – we just sliced ours since the skins were so soft and edible

3 kg Sugar

1 1/2 cups water

1 1/2 cups white vinegar

1 apple, peeled and sliced thinly

Ginger (optional – add to taste)


Put sugar, water and vinegar into saucepan and bring to boil Boil for 10 minutes#figjamSugar and liquids

I used apple cider vinegar (since I had run out of white vinegar)

Whilst the syrup is boiling top and tail the figs and chop or slice.


Figs sliced

When the syrup has become clear (10 minutes at rolling boil) add the fruit mix – carefully.


Sugar syrup at Boil

Add figs, apple & ginger (if using)  and boil until tender for approx 30-40 minutes, I left out the ginger and it tasted beautiful. If you love ginger add here.


Add fruit to sugar mix

until setting point is reached – it took the full 40 minutes to reach. I made a half batch of this recipe and it made 11 half pint jars.


Suray Fig Jam

Pour into sterilised jars & seal. It makes a dark, rich and smooth jam. Perfect for scones, toast or biscuits.


Suray Fig Jam


Keeps for approximately 12 months (unless eaten sooner).

We have only had lovely comments about the jam so try some and let me know.


Blessings, Susan ♥
