We are HUGE fans of a fig jam. Not only is it delicious spread on some toast or biscuits, but it's a staple on any of our charcuterie boards.

But did you know you can make a jam at home using Balsamic Vinegar as a main ingredient? It adds the most wonderful tart yet sweet flavor, and you can get creative with tons of combinations.

We created this wonderful fig jam using our, you guessed it, Fig Balsamic Vinegar! Yes, it would be delicious with other combinations, such as Blackberry or White Lemon, but we wanted an extra dose of that delicious fig flavor.

Besides being scrumptious, this jam as the extra bonus of being so easy to make! You don't even need fresh figs! We made this jam using dried figs, and we have to say, it turned out phenomenally.

So go make it! You'll be done in 30 minutes, and have a wonderfully delicious jam that will last you weeks, even months! 

Easy Balsamic Fig Jam Recipe


  • 1 ½ cups dried figs
  • 1 ½ cups granulated sugar
  • 6 tablespoons Fig Balsamic Vinegar
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 ½ teaspoons lemon juice


  1. Remove the stems, and cut each fig into 4-6 pieces.
  2. In a medium to large saucepan, combine the chopped figs, sugar, water, fig balsamic vinegar, and lemon juice. Place the saucepan over medium heat and bring the mixture to a boil, then lower the heat to maintain a gentle and steady simmer. Allow it to cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Use an immersion blender, or a regular blender on pulse mode, to blend the jam until the large chunks are broken down yet the mixture still retains some texture.
  4. Continue cooking the jam for an additional 5-10 minutes, or until it has thickened to your liking. Remember, it will thicken slightly as it cools.
  5. Once done, pour the jam into jars with tight-fitting lids. Store the jam in the refrigerator for up to two weeks or freeze it for two to three months.

Time to Enjoy!
