Spiced Fig Orange Jam


Love this. Going to make more for sure. Kind of combined 2 recipes I, II. Threw in a vanilla bean. Honestly the directions are pretty imprecise/inaccurate. I actually took about a week to make this, kept cooking it up a little bit each day. You shouldn't do that. But the fruit/sugar ratio is right.

Fig Orange Jam:

17 oz figs
1/2 t citric acid
10 oz sugar
a vanilla bean
water from rinsing out a jar of orange marmalade
juice/pulp from 2 oranges
diced rind from oranges
ground cinnamon
ground cloves

combine everything but sugar and spice and let sit overnight
add sugar and spices, cook it up, and let sit overnight again
cook it up and put in jars
