Prep time: 1 hour
Cook time: 1 hour
Makes: ½ pint



1 lb. figs stems removed, washed, and quartered
2 T. fresh lemon juice
½ c. maple syrup, preferably local
1 t. pure vanilla bean extract



  1. In a large bowl, combine the prepped figs with the lemon juice and allow the figs sit at room temperature for about 45 minutes.
  2. Transfer the figs, along with the juice, to a large pot set over medium heat. Add the maple syrup and vanilla extract and stir to combine.

  4. Serve immediately or transfer to an airtight container and store in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Enjoy!
