On the lookout for figs



Have you ever tried fig jam? I first bought a jar from a vendor at a local farmers’ market. He sold a wide variety of products. The one he convinced me to buy had just a smidge of jalapeno in it. The salesman assured me it was good on almost everything. Sure, I thought.

But darned if he wasn’t right. We used it on pulled pork, hamburgers, crab cakes. All delicious.

The problem is I haven’t been able to find the vendor again. He doesn’t have a store front. What to do? Well, try Amazon, of course. They sell a lot of different jams and preserves, but nono of them seem to have the jalapenos.


This one is also sold at my local Publix. My husband says we can cut up a jalapeno from our back yard and mix it in ourselves. I am doubtful this will produce the same result, but I guess I’ll give it a try.

Have you ever found a product that is as versatile as fig Jam turned out to be?
