Yes white sugar would be OK.   I used raw sugar in some jam recently. Ok but different sugars affect the setting time.

I've got my figs ready to make some more of this delicious jam.
I child-proofed my house, but they still get in!

Chookie, I bought a little fig tree at the growers markets on Sunday it had one fig thats just about ready to pick. What I've read is they fruit in one to two years so I'm sure you will see it fruit.

For those in Perth I see Frozberries have a new product, fig purée.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

A friend rang from Augusta last week to ask if I would make him some fig jam, if he brought me the figs. Of course I said yes. I used this recipe twice and got 4 lovely jars. I overcooked the first batch a bit so it’s fig jam/paste.

Cookie, when I over cook jam and it’s a bit too thick, I just add a bit of water or lemon juice and cook for a few minutes more. However it’s sometimes hard to tell until it sets up.

Thanks Chookie. My friend was very appreciative but probably too polite to say anything. 😀😀😀😀😀
