Description

I gave these Spiced Fig Preserves an autumn flavor that is just perfect for the season by adding orange juice, dark brown sugar and warm cozy spices.

Ingredients

  • 6 whole Allspice Berries
  • 2 whole Cinnamon Sticks, Broken In Half
  • 2 whole Cloves
  • 1 piece Fresh Ginger (thumbnail Size), Peeled
  • 2 pounds Fresh Figs, Trimmed And Cut Into Small Pieces
  • ¾ cups Dark Brown Sugar (or More To Taste)
  • ½ cups Orange Juice

Preparation

Place allspice, cinnamon sticks, cloves and ginger in a square of cheesecloth and tie it closed with a piece of twine (make sure it’s tightly closed so your spices don’t leak out). Be sure that one end of the twine is long enough to tie around the handle of your pot. This will make it much easier to remove the spices from the hot preserves.

In a large sauce pot, combine figs, brown sugar and orange juice. Add the spice bag into the pot, tying one end of the twine around the pot handle. Stir.

Cook mixture at a medium simmer, stirring frequently, until the mixture thickens and groups of large shiny bubbles begin to appear on the surface. This will take about 15-20 minutes. Remove pot from heat.

Remove spice bag and allow preserves to cool. Transfer to a jar or container and refrigerate.

Recipe makes roughly 3 1/2 cups. Preserves will last for 1-2 weeks, stored in the refrigerator. Use a sterile canning process for longer shelf life.
