As you know, we have fig trees. However picking those figs is a whole other story. Between the deer, birds, my pig, and our neighbor Pete, it’s tough to get a good crop. However this year I persevered and picked enough to make jam. But not any jam, this jam is pure Table Mountain Ranch. It uses both ranch fruit and ranch honey, a marriage made in heaven!
Honey Fig Jam
- 4 cups roughly chopped fresh figs
- 1/4 cup lemon juice
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 package pectin
- 4 cups sugar
- 4 Tablespoons honey
Wash and de-stem your figs. Chop finely. Add the figs, lemon juice, and water in a large saucepan. Add pectin and stir until combined. Bring the mixture to a rolling boil, stirring often.
When the mixture has reached a full roiling boil, add the sugar and honey.
Boil hard for one minute, stirring constantly. Skim foam, and ladle into processed jars leave 1/4 inch headspace. Process for in a boiling water canner for 10 minutes.
