Fig & Red Wine Jam

Homemade Fig & Red Wine Jam makes a wonderful sweet-and-savory treat — and a great holiday gift to give away to friends and family. The warm, bright flavors of red wine, orange, and cinnamon balance the sweetness of ripe, fresh figs in this easy jam recipe. Sweet from honey — but not cloyingly so — this jam goes well with cheeses, on toast or crackers, or as a sauce to serve with pork or chicken.

Combine figs, sugar, zest, and salt in a saucepan; let stand 1 hour, stirring occasionally.

Add 1/2 cup wine, honey, and cinnamon stick to pan; bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium; simmer jam until thickened, occasionally stirring and crushing figs with a potato masher, about 30 minutes.

Off heat, stir in remaining 2 Tbsp. wine and vanilla; cool jam completely. Store jam in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
