Preparation of fig and almond jam

  1. To make this fragrant fig and almond jam, start by peeling the figs, then cut them into small pieces and put them in a large pan with a thick bottom.
  2. Wash the lemon , dry it and grate half of the zest, being careful not to remove even the most bitter white part.
  3. Add the sugar, mix gently with a spoon and cover everything with cling film. Let it rest for an hour.
  4. After the indicated resting time, useful for macerating the fruits together with the sugar , remove the film and put the pot on the stove.
  5. Cook over medium heat until boiling, then lower the heat and stir occasionally. Separately, toast the peeled almonds in a pan for a few minutes or in any case just enough to make them golden.
  6. Add the whole almonds to the jam or chop them finely until you get a grain before adding them.
  7. Mix well then do the classic test with the saucer to check the right consistency of the jam: drop a teaspoon of jam on a saucer, wait just a few moments then tilt it. If the jam does not run, it is ready to be transferred to well-sterilized jars .
  8. Pot the jam, close with the lids, turn them upside down and let them cool. Store the cold jars in the pantry until use.
