It’s a Pressure Cooker Miracle…No stirring or hours invested in “making jam”! Ripe fresh figs, of every color, make a beautiful jam, but most high-pectin fruits work well too; apples, plums and blackberries all do well in the pressure cooker. So bottle it and savor, even when your favorite fruit’s season is over.
2 pounds fresh figs, washed and air dried
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
Zest and juice of 1 lemon
1 teaspoon vanilla paste or pure vanilla extract or 1 vanilla bean, split
Small pinch of salt
1. Cut the figs in half, or in quarters if they are on the larger side and place them in the inner pot of your Kalorik Pressure Cooker.
2. Add the granulated sugar, brown sugar, lemon juice, vanilla and salt and stir to combine.
3. Set your pressure to cook on "High" for 3 minutes. When the pressure cooker signals you that the cycle is complete, manually move the "Steam Release" button to “open” to release the steam.
4. Unlock the lid and remove it. (If you used a vanilla bean, scrape the seeds from the inside of the bean, add them to the pot and discard the bean.)
5. Using your Kalorik Hand Blender, puree the jam until smooth.
6. Spoon the hot jam into Mason Jars, seal the lids and let cool completely before storing.
