My Fig and Ginger Jam

I got a bunch of figs yesterday and decided to do something different with them. 
This is what I came up with =)
My Fig and Ginger Jam
Ingredients:
  • 10 -12 figs (I used black mission figs)
  • 1/2 – 1 inch fresh ginger (grated) or 1/2 – 1 tsp ground ginger (you can use as much or as little ginger as you want depending on your own taste)
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup agave nectar (or any sweetener you prefer. If using sugar I would use more than 1/2 cup)
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract (or scrape the inside of a vanilla bean)
  • juice from half of one small lime
  • pinch of salt
Directions: 

Cut stems off figs. Dice figs into small pieces and throw in pot. Add ginger, water, agave, lime and salt. Once it begins to boil turn heat down low and simmer for 45 minutes, stirring often. If it’s too chunky you can put it in a food processor and pulse a couple of times. It thickens as it cools. Keep refrigerated in an air tight container. Should keep for 2 -3 weeks. It’s great on toast and I think it would taste amazing on top of vanilla ice cream (vegan of course)! Enjoy!
