Sweet, savory & spicy!
I have fallen in love with the simple way to preserve figs, which I learned at my weekly markets in Certaldo. I serve them with Gorgonzola cheese and use them often in savory dishes, but are naturally sweet.

If you're lucky enough to have a bucket full of figs, making fig jam isn't such a bad idea.
This recipe is inspired by Christine Ferber. The preparation is simple as this jam is macerated overnight to allow the figs to absorb the sugar and lemon. Hope you enjoy!
