Bear N Mom Recipes - Canning Fig Jam

Updated on September 5, 2014
Fig Tree
Fig Tree

The figs were plentiful this year. My neighbors two trees are full of fruit. He had to put netting over them to keep the birds from feasting before he can harvest his crops.

This was a hidden treasure that I found in Nunny's hat box of recipes. I only found it when we moved into a house that had the worst smelling plant I ever saw growing next to the back porch. I was determined to uproot this plant before the next growing season but was I in for a surprise. This smelly growth turned out to be a fig tree that produced an abundance of little walnut shaped fruits, FIGS.


1 pound dried figs
2 tart apples
rind and juice of 1 orange
rind and juice of 1 lemon
4 cups water
3 cups sugar
dash of salt

How To Mix, Cook and Put Up

wash figs and remove stems.
chop into small pieces.
peel and core apples; chop fine.

put figs, apples and rind of orange and lemon in heavy kettle.
add water and boil for 10 minutes;
reduce heat and cook for 10 minutes longer.

add sugar and salt and simmer for another 20 to 25 minutes. Stir occasionnally.

add orange and lemon juice, mix well and remove from heat and pour into jam glasses. seal with parafin. makes about 7 glasses of jam.

    Try the fig bars too and you know you can string them on shoestrings to dry out for other recipes.

    Another cool hub bearnmom. My parents have a fig tree that produces so many figs, we can't eat them fast enough. I think they'll like the jam and this will be a great way to make them last all year long. Thanks again :-)
