Fig Balsamic Jam Recipe

Fig Balsamic Jam Recipe

I’d just bookmarked this fig-balsamic jam a week or so earlier on Gloria’s site, I had to have it. It’s super easy to make, you only need 4 ingredients! The figs are cooked down with sugar and balsamic vinegar until thick and chunky (though I did puree mine for a slightly smoother consistency). The jam is sweet and tangy and completely irresistible! And it can be used for so many things. Later this week I’ll show you my new favorite way to enjoy it – it is not to be missed!

Fig-Balsamic Jam

from Authentic Suburban Gourmet


  • 1 pound figs, stems removed and coarsely chopped
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice


Add the figs, sugar, and balsamic vinegar to a medium saucepan and set over medium heat. Bring the mixture to a simmer, stirring occasionally, then lower the heat to maintain a simmer. Continue cooking, still stirring occasionally, until the figs have broken down and the jam is thick and chunky (if you want to use a candy thermometer, the jam will register 215-220 F). Remove from the heat and stir in the lemon juice. If you prefer a less chunky jam, you can puree with an immersion blender at this point (I did).

Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 month.

Makes just over 1 cup.
