The Fabulous Fig Jam From Argentina

Lately, I have been seeing figs everywhere. There were so many things that I want to make with figs, but I wanted to start with something that will last for a little while, so I decided to make Fig Jam.

Figs are a common fruit in Argentina and families usually love having fig jam during Christmas and that’s probably because the Figs are only in season for 3 months. But if that wasn’t the case I believe all of us would eat figs all year round.

This jam is perfect for breakfast or with cheese. Yes, cheese! I know it sounds strange, but it is yummy!


  • 1 1/2 lb Figs ( Washed, Cut in Halfs, and Without Stems)

  • 2 Cup of Superfine Sugar

  • 1 Whole of Clove

  • 1 Lemon (Lemon Zests)

  • 2 Tbs of Rum or Whisky


  • In a large bowl, place the figs and sugar. Let those two ingredients soak overnight.
  • The next day, transfer everything in a large cooking pan and add the clove. Cook everything in low heat until the sugar is completely dissolved. Stir as needed
  • After the sugar has dissolved, add the lemon zests
  • Bring to boil for 30 minutes or until the mixture is very thick. Stir occasionally to help the juices evaporate.
  • Remove the clove and store in a mason jar.
