Servings: 6 -8 Cups


  • 4 pounds fresh figs washed, stemmed and cut into ½-inch pieces
  • Zest and juice of 2 lemons
  • 8 sprigs fresh oregano leaves picked
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ cup honey


  • Combine all of the ingredients with 1 cup of water in a large, nonreactive saucepan over medium-high heat, cover, and bring to a boil.
  • Remove the lid and reduce the heat to a simmer over low heat. Stir the mixture. Let it continue to cook, stirring occasionally, until the fruit is soft and the liquid runs off the side of a spoon in thick, heavy drops, about 35 minutes.
  • Spoon the jam into jars and allow to cool before being stored.
  • Store in jars in the refrigerator for up to 3 months. Alternatively, process the jam in a hot-water bath for 5 minutes. It will store in a cool dark place for 12 to 18 months.
