Directions
  • For a very thick jam (as shown) simmer for the full 50 minutes. For a looser jam, simmer only for 40 minutes.
  • Using a vegetable peeler, remove strips of rind from lemon, being careful not to include the white pith as you peel the strips.
  • Place lemon rind strips and all other ingredients into a medium, heavy-bottomed saucepan. Stir to combine.
  • Bring contents in the saucepan to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring frequently. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer 40-50 minutes (*see note above) or until mixture thickens, continuing to stir frequently so the mixture doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pot.
  • Discard thyme stems and lemon peel. Pulse jam with an immersion blender to chop up the fig skins if desired.
  • Pour into an 8-ounce jelly jar. Keep refrigerated for up to one month.
