Serve this honey-colored jam alongside goat cheese or 1/3-less-fat cream cheese with assorted crackers. The recipe makes a lot, so store in decorative jars in your refrigerator to serve to unexpected guests and at impromptu parties. Tie on a pretty ribbon to present as a hostess gift. We use Calimyrna figs here, but any dried figs you like will work just fine. This jam would also make a great glaze for roast pork or chicken, or you could stir a touch into pan sauces for a hit of fruit flavor. Put some in a ramekin to include with cheese boards for party guests.
