Rice harvesting has started in Satoyama that is a sign of Autumn beginning.
I harvested figs from my backyard.
We never had a good harvest of figs.
Crows eat them all usual years.
But this year, a fig tree beer a lot of fruit as that can share with crows.
It's super organic.
In other word, we did not take care of it.
Surprisingly great harvest.
I was wondering what can I do with a lot of figs.
Then I got a request from my family "we want you to make them jam"
OK, good idea!
Ingredient: figs 750-800g, sugar 250 - 300g, lemon juice 3-4 tablespoon. (I put honey instead of half of the sugar)
① Peel off fig skin. Tip: Easier peel from the top.
② Cut figs into bite-size. (It's ok to be bigger)
③ Put cut figs and sugar and lemon juice into a pan.
④ Leave it for 30mins. Then the water comes out from figs.
④Simmer it by low to medium heat.
After simmering about 30mins. It became like this.
⑤Stir to check. If you think it is a jam. then finish!
I tasted it.....
Yes, it's fantastic!
If you get a lot of figs.
Try making a jam!
It's fun and yummy!
