Fresh fig is a tasty and economically priced fruit that is available in plenty in India when the fruit is in season. It is so tempting that we often end up coming home with a rather large batch.

However, the fruit is perishable so we also have to think of many nice ways in which to consume it! This Homemade Fresh Fig Jam is perhaps one of the best options. Made with jaggery and lemon juice, this Fresh Fig Jam is very healthy and irresistibly tasty.

So aromatic and flavourful is it that you will end up having a few slices more of bread. You can also have it with chapathis and dosas! Store it in an airtight jar in the fridge, where it’ll stay good for a week.

You can also make and relish other jams at homemade like Veg Puff or Apple Jam .

This recipe came out great for me. I used palm jaggery and added a bit of cardamom. Perfect way to use figs that are not really sweet enough to enjoy raw
