Despite a tree-laden series of posts, we also like to eat figs here at FanFigtion. Today I’m going to highlight a fig jam that I like a lot.
Meet the Côteaux Nantais confiture figues extra. I bought a jar for my wife’s Christmas stocking, but I must admit to having eaten most of it myself.
This jam is superb. It’s super figgy and not too sweet, with big chunks of fig spread throughout. It’s like someone took a potato masher to a bunch of very ripe figs.
The jar says that it is 65% fig by weight, and that the only other ingredients are “red sugar” and citrus juice. The simple composition really lets the fig flavor shine through.
Today we enjoyed some with a mild brie on pieces of brioche Nanterre, which is a great combination. I’ve also enjoyed it on hamburgers.
