Making jam is a fast and easy way to enjoy your late summer fruit. This was so easy; I didn’t have a vanilla bean, but I did have a craving for honey, so I simply substituted it. The experiment was a success, and I had spreadable jam in no time.


  • 1520 small fresh figs, stems removed and chopped
  • 1/4 cup (50g) granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup (85g) honey


  1. Combine ingredients in a medium sized saucepan. Bring to a boil (may need a little water, but wait and see how much the fruit produces).
  2. Adjust heat so that it boils steadily. If the mixture is too soupy, increase heat; too dry, decrease. Cook and stir until the mixture is a thick liquid (there will be chunks of figs-this is nice and natural).
  3. Let cool and store in a jar for up to a week in the refrigerator.
