Easy Maple Fig Mint Jam


Units Scale
  • 12 to15 fresh figs, stemmed and quartered
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • juice of one fresh squeezed lemon
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoon dried mint leaves or 2 teaspoon fresh mint leaves, chopped


  1. Place all ingredients in a large saucepan, stir and bring to a boil.
  2. Reduce heat and simmer until mixture starts to thicken. Add in extra water one tablespoon at a time as needed to prevent sauce from sticking to bottom of pan.
  3. When mixture has thickened, remove from heat and allow to cool slightly. If you desire a smoother jam, as I do, transfer to a blender or food processor and pulse to the desired texture.
  4. Store jam in air tight container in the fridge.
  5. Enjoy!
