Jam for my man 😆😆. I seriously have some generous group of neighbors. As the mighty fig season is upon us few of our neighbors shared their fig harvest with us. I decided to make fig jam with this sweetest variety. Touch of cardamom and further sweetened with jaggery powder – gives this jam a unique taste. Sharing the recipe below. I love fig jam with crackers and goat cheese. How do you like yours? let me know in comments 🙋🏻‍♀️😊


  • 2 lbs fresh, ripe organic figs
  • 1/2 cup jaggery powder
  • juice of half lemon
  • 1 tbsp cardamom powder
  • 1/4 cup water


  • Warm figs, cardamom, lemon juice in a deep pan on medium heat.
  • Stir it frequently until the figs are juicy.
  • Turn the heat to low, add 1/4 cup jaggery at a time and stir. Let it dissolve. Then add remaining jaggery & water and simmer for 20-30 minutes stirring occasionally until the figs are soft and the jam begins to thicken.
  • Turn off the heat and let it cool down completely. When it comes to room temperature scoop it in the mason jars.
  • Close the lids and store the jam in fridge. It stays good for about 15-20 days.
  • Serve w/ crackers, and goat cheese 🧀
  • Bon Appetit!
