Fig Jam for Christmas
On a roll with my Christmas cooking now and yesterday picked the first of the organic figs (ie growing on the tree in the back yard) which looked very pale inside and I thought I would have to add some food colouring to perk it up (god forbid). Then miraculously the natural colour became richer and richer in the cooking- I couldn't believe it! This looks like a berry jam instead of fig it is so red all on its own!
I will package these two little beauties up to give away as gifts. This preserve is not only good on toast but great with cheese instead of quince and a nice alternative to have with the turkey instead of cranberries.
