Figgy Jam

Mimi, a lovely girl I met on the first day of orientation gave me a bag of figs today from her garden! There were some squishy ones, of which I proceeded to make jam with. A touch of lemon juice, the seeds of half a vanilla bean and a sprinkling of sugar all reduced to figgy deliciousness :)

I grated in an apple cos I didn't have any pectin in the house on hand. Apples will cook down and make the fig reduction thick~

Here it is once it's done! Smells amazing as it cooks and cools~

Crusty baguette with cream cheese and freshly made fig jam. Yum.
