Low-Sugar Fig Preserves Recipe


Fig Preserves On English Muffin

I’ve had fig trees for many years, but the grasshoppers killed them and I have missed them. The gift of 5 pounds of figs from an organic farm was a thrill. These had to be made into the best jam I could concoct — better than I’d ever made in years past.

Thinking of places where figs grow in common abundance, even wild out of rock crevasses, this is my recipe for the best fig jam I’ve ever tasted. The reduced sugar allows the flavor of the figs to shine through and adding orange and vanilla enhances the flavor of figs.


Makes 10 half-pints

• 5 pounds fresh, very ripe figs
• 4 cups cane sugar
• candied zest of one orange
• 1 vanilla bean

I am sharing my experience, We have vegetables and food from the market is not 100% organic food, it is missed with poison liquid as you know the people spray the plants to grow the vegetables and fruits faster, My lab professor referred a guide it helps me to plant and prepare a good organic food for healthy life. Check the guide here >>( http://go2l.ink/plants ) <<. Now my family my relations are using this technique to get quality vegetables and fruits. All the best
