Fig Jam recipe

My giant fig tree of doom has finally started providing figs, only got a kilo over the weekend, but that's enough to start the Jam!

- Equal weights of top and tailed figs and white sugar.
- 1Tbs each of Cinnamon and Allspice.

It helps if you have a handful of quite green figs, that adds some pectin to the mix.

Add all of that to a pot a good bit bigger than necessary, slowly bring to boil, stirring every 5 minutes or so to prevent burning the sugar.

Let it boil for an hour or so.

Mash or blend to your preferred chunkiness, I like it really smooth so I blend it.

Bottle, Cool, Serve!
