Easy Fig and Honey Jam

image

Ingredients:
6 cups fresh figs (washed & quartered)
1 whole lemon (sliced and de-seeded)
1 1/2 cups honey
1/2 cup of water

Directions:
Place all ingredients in pot.
Bring to a boil.
Once figs start to get soft, press then remove lemon slices.
Mash figs with a potato masher.
Mix constantly (you don’t want to burn the honey).
Bring to a boil.
At this point you can either continue to mash with the potato masher, or you can use a emersion blender (That’s what I did).
Bring to a boil.
Reduce heat to simmer.
Stir constantly for 15-20 minutes.
Test set.
If the jam is set, ladle into sterilized jars. If you aren’t happy with the set, continue to simmer until the test set is correct.
Water bath can for 10 minutes.
