Figs are beautiful this time of year and my local fruit market had tons of them. So I bought some and decided to do something that would last more than just one meal – marmalade! I mean, who can say no to a delicious and sweet marmalade on top of a creamy cheese?
This marmalade is, as it should be, quite sweet so I’ve added some lemon zest to balance it out a little bit. You can also add a cinnamon stick if you want to give it a more Christmas feel. It’s also perfect as a gift in a cute jar. 

800 g ripe figs, roughly chopped
1 vanilla bean, split and seed scraped
400 g sugar
juice of 1 lemon

Put all ingredients in a bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and let this sit at room temperature for 8 hours.
Transfer to a pan. Stir over low heat to dissolve sugar. Bring to a boil and let it cook for 45 minutes on low heat. Stir regularly.

Remove vanilla bean and carefully mash the figs with a masher or fork. Remove from heat and et it cool for 10 minutes. Pour into sterilized jars and seal. Store for up to 3 months in refrigerator. Delicious!
