Fig jam with honey, cinnamon and white wine


Preparation time  : 10

Cooking time  : 40

Difficulty  simple

Number of persons s: 4 to 5 x 250 g jars

List of ingredients :

  • 1 kg 200 of figs ripe violets
  • 50 cl white wine (quality)
  • 500g of honey thousand flowers, liquid
  • 400g granulated sugar
  • 1 stick of  cinnamon

Preparation of the recipe

  • I wipe my figs, I remove the tail. I cut them in 4. I put them in my copper basin, I pour the white wine and add the cinnamon stick.
  • I bring to the boil, not too quickly, I let it simmer until the figs soften. I take them and store them in a bowl.
  • I add the honey in my basin, then the sugar. I reduce this very perfumed syrup. It freezes at the end of my wooden spoon. I take the cinnamon stick.
  • I decant my figs, I use my masher to give more consistency and give a little broth.
  • I boil my pots and their lids. I wipe them off as I fill them and screw the lids on tightly, then I soak them again in hot water, standing upright and not turned over (25 minutes). The vacuum will do itself.
  • This principle is appertization (Nicolas Appert), I never spill my pots. The lid bombs at first, then curves, the vacuum is made.

Chief’s Council  :

Served iced with a scoop of ice cream or sorbet or warmed up and put in a buckwheat pancake in a chaplain’s hat… Everything is allowed even to eat it with a spoon, pure happiness in a jar!
