Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Mash blueberries with a fork in a small bowl. Transfer to a 3 1/2-quart pot. Add figs, sugar, water, lime juice, and balsamic vinegar. Lightly pulse with an immersion blender until mostly smooth, with some chunks remaining for texture.

  • Place the pot on the stove over medium-high heat. Stir continuously as it comes to a boil. Reduce heat to low, and stir periodically, until thickened, 20 to 25 minutes. Check doneness by dropping a small spoonful of jam onto a frozen plate. Let sit for 1 to 2 minutes; if jam appears to gel, it is ready. Continue cooking if jam appears thin and runny.

  • When jam has thickened, remove from heat and allow to cool slightly, about 10 minutes. Pour jam into a clean jar with a hermetic seal. Allow to cool completely before refrigerating.

Cook's Note:

Lemon juice can be substituted for lime juice.

Oh my gosh! This is fantastic! The only thing I did differently was to add twice as much berries because I had two “fat”cups of figs that we pick off the tree this morning. Kept everything else the same using lemon vs lime, just seemed a better fit. I didn’t smash the berries first because I figured the immersion would do them in anyway. I also simmered ten or fifteen minutes longer to get a thicker consistency. Thank you so much for sharing! Read More

I made jam for the first time with this recipe and I followed it exactly, except that the cooking time was longer than 25 minutes to get a thicker consistency. It is really tasty! Read More
