Easy Homemade Fig Jam

1 lb black figs
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup water
juice of 1/2 small lemon
1 tsp pure vanilla extract

  1. Pull the stems off the figs, then puree them in a food processor until mostly smooth (a few chunks are okay to give it some texture).
  2. Transfer the fig paste to a medium-sized heavy-bottomed (but not cast iron) pot. Stir in the sugar, water, and lemon juice. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, then reduce heat to medium.
  3. Boil, stirring nearly constantly, until it becomes jam-like in consistency. At this point it’ll look kind of shiny and will fall off a spoon in bigger clumps or sheets, as opposed to small drips. If you are unsure, turn off the heat and place a bit of the jam on a cold plate (stuck in the freezer before you begin), let it sit for a minute or so, then check the consistency to see if it is jam-like. If needed, return to the heat for a few more minutes.
