Fig Jam Recipe

I have had a love of figs since I had an amazing appetizer that used a combination of them with blue cheese and prosciutto. Since then, I created this fig jam and have used it as a glaze on our Easter ham, smeared it on a bagel with cream cheese and dolloped on pizza. — Monica Keleher, Methuen, Massachusetts
