  • 13 ounces figs I used Brown Turkey, but Black Mission will work great too
  • 1 Granny Smith apple
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 4 ounces brown sugar or make your own
  • 4 ounces agave nectar
  • pinch salt
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • zest of 1 medium navel orange 1 teaspoon packed


  • Halve the figs, and quarter any that are really huge. Place in a pot.
  • Core and peel the apple, and chop into ½” cubes. Place in the pot with the figs.
  • Add everything else to the pot and heat over medium-low heat, stirring until the brown sugar liquefies.
  • Simmer over low heat for 30 min, occasionally stirring with a metal spoon. Remove cinnamon stick and simmer for another 30 min. (You can leave the cinnamon stick in if you prefer more cinnamon flavor.)
  • Pour into a jar and let it cool. When cool, store in the refrigerator.
