This vegan fig jam is heavenly on toast, or spread over graham crackers. This jam recipe can easily be doubled - why not make one for yourself, and give another as a gift? It will be so appreciated!


  • 1 lb. figs, stems removed, washed, and quartered
  • 2 T. fresh lemon juice
  • ½ c. maple syrup, preferably local
  • 1 t. pure vanilla bean extract



In a large bowl, combine the prepped figs with the lemon juice and allow the figs sit at room temperature for about 45 minutes.


Transfer the figs, along with the juice, to a large pot set over medium heat. Add the maple syrup and vanilla extract and stir to combine.


Cook, stirring occasionally, until the figs break down into a thick and slightly granular jam, around 50-55 minutes. Remove from heat and cool slightly.


Serve immediately or transfer to an airtight container and store in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Enjoy!
