I love making jams, not only it is healthy to make at home. But homemade jams taste really delicious than the store bought kind.Whenever i see some overly ripe fruits lying around i make jam out of them. I never waste anything. Sometimes i even buy fruits to make jam..This is one jam which i made like that..
Figs are really good for you..I made this jam for amma..I decided to add little sugar to it. I thought of adding jaggery in this, but i ran out of it..So i added demerara sugar and it turned out yummy..Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..
Preparation Time : 10 mins
Cooking Time : 20 to 25 mins
Makes : around 300 grams
Figs - 20
Brown Sugar / Jaggery or Demerara Sugar - 1/2 cup
Put a plate in freezer.
Sterilize a glass jar, remove and set aside to drain.
Take 3/4th of the figs in a blender and puree. Take that in a pan.
Add in remaining chopped figs along with sugar and mix well.
Cook this for 15 mins on medium heat till it gets thick and leaves the sides.
Spoon a little bit on the plate and it will get thick like a jam, this is when you know that the jam is done.
Cool it a bit and spoon it into the jar. Cover it and store in fridge.
