Spicy Fig Orange Microwave Jam


1 1/2 cups diced Fresh figs (6-10 figs, depending on the size)

1/2 up seeded, peeled oranges, diced

1 1/2 cup of sugar

1 1/2 teaspoon grated orange peel

1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

1 (8-oz) canning jars


1. Place the ingredients in a large ceramic or glass bowl ( I use a 1-at pyrex measuring cup), stir to combine, let sit for 20 minutes for the fruit to mascerate in the sugar.

2.  Place in microwave.  You will cook the fruit mixture on high setting for approximately 15 minutes.  As soon as the misture starts to boil, after about 6-8 minutes.  Stop the cooking and stir.  Continue cooking and stir every few minutes.  At about 13 minutes the mixture should start to get viscous.  Check of seeing how the jam runs off a spoon.  If it seems to firm up a bit as it drips, it’s done.

3.  Pour the jam into jars, leaving 1/4 ” of headroom from the top of the jars.  If you will be keeping your jam in a cupborad, then use sterilzied jars (heat them in the oven at 200F for 10 minutes). If you plan to use quickly and will keep them in the refrigerator, reg
ular clean ts will do.
