Unripe figs
« on: October 04, 2018, 08:10 »
Yesterday I cleared my fig tree of unripe figs & thereís quite a haul, anybody have any ideas of what I can make with them. I googled & thereís an unripe fig Ďjamí that looks ok, but before I invest any time into them anybody else do anything thatís worth trying please?

If you have any left still you can try green figs in rose syrup. Whatever you do, make sure you soak them in two changes of cold water and then boil them to remove all that white latex before beginning to turn them into something luscious

Thanks Sunny.
Iíve decided to go with this recipe for fig jam, it says about the boiling x 2 & squeezing to get rid ofíbad Tasteí . After a couple of days of them sitting in a bowl on the side a few have gorn orf so Iím left with 740g. Iíve washed & snipped the stalks off as they had stopped dripping the sap. Theyíre boiling for the first time now.
Take a look at the pictures on the link Iíve posted  they look luscious, not a jam at all really

Well Iíve finally completed the Ďfig jamí . It didnít take very long in all but it was spread over a few days.
Day 1, I boiled the figs & left to cool
Day 2, squeezed the Ďbad tasteí out & recoiled in more cold water.
Day 3 squeezed again & put 8n the fridge as I was going out.
Then I wasnít well 2 days
So final day ,today Iíve boiled up in the sugar & water & bottled them which in all took about 45 minutes with washing & sterilising the jars.
Sorry the photo is upside down again it shows in the thumb nail the right way up!

Ive not opened a jar yet but I did taste a little that fell apart & it tasted fine,certainly not unpleasant but a bit lacking, I reduced the 4 cloves to 3 as I only ended up with 740g of figs & reduced the water & sugar by 1/4 too.

Perhaps they will be richer in flavour for keeping a while?

If they are not very tasty, maybe you couid tip out one jarful and add some rosewater to the syrup before serving them with icecream?
