My Fig Marmalade Recipe

The fig tree in our garden is bearing fruits now and every week we have to harvest the figs. The best way to preserve the figs is to make marmalade. Here is my recipe.

You'll need:

  • 8-10 jars with tight closing lid
  • 2 kg figs
  • 1.5kg sugar
  • 700ml water
  • 1 teaspoon cinammon
  • 4 Tablespoons lemon juice
Lets go!

Peel the figs.

Put the figs with the water into a cooking pot and bring to boil.

After 15 minutes of boiling add the sugar.

Simmer the marmalade until sufficient thick. Stir well. For me it was 1.5 hours. If the marmalade is too chunky, use a hand blender to make it smoother. Add cinnamon and lemon juice and stir well.

When you have reached a nice thickness, fill the marmalade in your jars.

Tighten the lids and turn the jars upside down. This heats the "neck" portion of the jar, killing bacterias that might be there.

When cooled down the jars will be vacuum sealed. Keep in a dry and dark place.
