Fig Butter

This fig butter is very good and has no added sugar (unlike most of the fig preserves you can buy around here). I don't think my frozen figs were the best ones from last year's crop and I can't wait to try this recipe again when I have figs fresh from our tree. The riper the figs, the tastier the fig butter will be, I'm sure.

  • 24 fresh figs stems removed
  • Water


  • (Don't worry too much about actual measurements here, I just included a number so I could calculate nutritional information.)
  • Place figs in a medium saucepan and cover them with water. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for about 20 minutes or until the mixture has thickened. Stir occasionally.
  • Once the mixture is a nice consistency, remove from heat and let it cool slightly. Process in a food processor until smooth. Store in refrigerator.
