Fig Jam Recipe

This easy fig jam recipe is perfect for when you have leftover seasonal figs and are unsure what to do with all the figs. We have a food hydrator and dry figs and then we also use the figs in this salad recipe. We are spoilt for choice with fruits in this country and there is much more you can do with figs, but I think dried figs and fig jam are among the most popular uses of figs.
