With fig season in full swing, we thought we’d share head chef and owner Nelly Robinson’s quick and easy fig jam. The perfect addition to any after dinner cheeseboard.
• 1.6 kg ripe figs
• 1 cup sugar
• 1/2 cup honey
• 1tsp cinnamon
• 1star anise
• lemon zest
• 1 cup water
Prepare figs by trimming off hard stem-end and slicing each fig into quarters. Place in an appropriately sized saucepan with rest of ingredients. Bring slowly to a simmer and keep simmering for 15 minutes until figs are soft. With a wooden spoon, break up any large pieces and keep cooking slowly for another 10 minutes or so until jam is thick. Store in preserving jars according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
