Making fig jam with cognac is a delightful and tasty twist on traditional fig jam. Here’s an easy recipe for you to try:


  • 2 cups dried figs, stems removed and chopped
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup cognac
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice


  1. Prepare the Figs:
    • Remove the stems from the dried figs and chop them into small pieces.
  2. Cooking the Figs:
    • In a medium-sized saucepan, combine the chopped dried figs and water. Bring the mixture to a boil.
    • Once boiling, reduce the heat to low and let it simmer for about 15-20 minutes or until the figs are softened.
  3. Sweeten the Jam:
    • Add granulated sugar to the softened figs and stir well. Continue to simmer, stirring occasionally until the sugar is completely dissolved.
  4. Flavor with Cognac:
    • Stir in the cognac, lemon zest, and lemon juice. Allow the mixture to simmer for an additional 10-15 minutes, or until the jam thickens to your desired consistency.
  5. Check for Consistency:
    • To check the jam’s consistency, place a small amount on a cold plate. If it wrinkles when touched, it’s ready. If not, continue simmering and repeat the test as needed.
  6. Cool and Store:
    • Once the jam reaches the desired consistency, remove it from heat and let it cool slightly.
    • Pour the jam into sterilized jars and seal them. Allow the jars to cool completely before storing them in the refrigerator.
  7. Serve:
    • This fig jam with cognac pairs well with various cheeses, crusty bread, or as a topping for desserts. Enjoy it as a spread or a condiment.

Feel free to adjust the sugar and cognac amounts based on your taste preferences. The addition of cognac adds a rich and warm depth of flavor to the sweet and fruity notes of the fig jam.
