Yields: 2 ½ lbs (1.2 kg) of jam (Yields 3 jars 14 oz (400 g)) :

  • 2.2 lbs (1 kg) of very ripe purple figs
  • 1 lb (500 g) of sugar
  • 1 vanilla bean
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 strip of lemon peel


  • Jam pot


  • Clean figs and remove stems. Cut figs in quarters and place them in layers in a terrine.
  • Sprinkle fig pieces with sugar.
  • Using a small kitchen knife, remove vanilla from bean and add to terrine.
  • Also add cinnamon stick and strip of lemon peel to the fruit in the terrine.
  • Let terrine rest for 2 hours, until figs have absorbed sugar.
  • After rest period, pour contents of terrine into jam pot.
  • Stir well and bring to a boil over high heat.
  • As soon as mixture boils, cook over medium heat for 5 to 8 minutes, stirring the fruit constantly.
  • Just before end of cooking, you may crush firm figs with a fork for even consistency.
  • Test on cold plate to check cooking time before putting into jars.


For ideal storage, I suggest closing when hot with screw tops (Twist-off): It is the most common method today for jam-making, with the advantage of being quick and easy.
Screw tops on jars while pushing down. Turn jars upside down until completely cool in order to create a vacuum that ensures preservation
