- Cut off any bruised part of the skin and then pulp the figs with a potato masher.
- I added the juice of 1 small clementine at this point as the figs were not that juicy before putting in the sugar.
- Melt sugar, bring to the boil and simmer for about 6-7 minutes. Test for setting by dropping a blob of jam on a saucer that has been chilled in the freezer. If it crinkles it’s set.
- Bottle up in jars that have been sterilised at a slow heat in the oven.
