Fig Blackcurrant Pepper Jam


We have enormous, very old fig trees as Mas des Poiriers and we love making fresh fig jam to put on cheese, goat cheese salad, or just toast in the morning.  This jam will work just as well in the morning when you get out of bed on your toast as it will with a cheeseboard.

But what is blackcurrant pepper? It is a spice made from blackcurrant buds that have been ground to a powder.  The buds used in this way do not have the sweetness of blackcurrant but add a little "pepperiness" while retaining the slight acidity of blackcurrant.

This spice with its woody and floral notes enhances the "round" taste of the (very) large pieces of figs for a unique and addictive recipe.


-Composition: fig, cane sugar, blackcurrant, lemon, cranberry, blackcurrant pepper, citrus pectin
