Tuscan Figs Jam

This year is so hot, so little water but so many figs. It’s wonderful to sit under one of our figs’ trees and eat its one by one but when your belly is definitely full you have to….make a jam.

Marmellata di Fichi
1 kg. figs
500gr. sugar
Remove the stems from the figs and cut the figs in pieces. Cook them stirring often . Once the figs are mushy, add the sugar and continue cooking until the jam is thick enough. Place in the jars while still hot, and let cool. Close them very well, and sterilize them in boiling water for 30 minutes.

    We just chatted about Figs over on our blog, too... My mouth is watering :-)
