How To Make Fig and Caramelized Pecan Preserve:
Preserved figs and caramelised pecans: Figs In Jam How are you doing today, friends? This is the jam for you if you like figs. It’s delicious on toast or crumpets, or in a sandwich with sliced Brie or Cheshire cheese.
Preparation: 15 minutes | Cooking: 20 minutes
Makes: 4 x 400g jars
- 500g fresh figs, trimmed and quartered
- 200ml water
- Finely grated zest and juice of 1 lemon
- 500g Tate & Lyle Jam Sugar
- 100g pecan nuts
- 2tbsp Tate & Lyle Caster Sugar
How To Make This Recipe:
1. Put the figs into a large saucepan with the water, lemon zest and juice. Cook over a gentle heat, stirring occasionally until the figs are soft – about 5-10 minutes.
2. Tip in the Tate & Lyle Jam Sugar and stir it in carefully to avoid breaking up the fruit. Heat gently, stirring occasionally, until the sugar has dissolved.
3. Boil the mixture gently until a soft set is reached. This could happen quite quickly, so check by placing a teaspoonful of the mixture onto a cold saucer and cooling it quickly. Push the surface with your finger – it should crinkle slightly, but should not be stiff. If this point has not been reached, continue to cook, checking regularly.
4. Turn off the heat and allow the jam to settle for 10-15 minutes. Meanwhile, sterilize 4 x 400g clean jam jars by placing them in a low oven at 150°C, fan 130°C, Gas Mark 2 for 10 minutes.
5. Meanwhile, make the caramelized pecans. Put them into a dry frying pan and heat for 1-2 minutes, turning often. Add the caster sugar and continue to heat until the sugar melts and begins to caramelize. Remove from the heat and cool for a few moments. Stir the pecans into the jam, then pour it into the hot sterilized jars. Seal with the lids. Leave to cool, then label. Store in a cool place for up to 1 year.
Cook’s Tip: You could use walnut halves instead of pecans if you prefer.
