Jars sterilisation process
You should make sure that your jars are clean to maintain the freshness of the jam. Sterilise your jars by washing them (and their lids) thoroughly in hot soapy water. Rinse them well. Heat the oven to 100°C (212°F). Place the jars and their lids on a baking sheet and put them in the oven for 20'. Ladle the fig jam into the hot jars, filling to just below the rim, and turn the jars upside down to seal allowing them to cool. Fig jam with rose geranium can be stored in a cool dry place or in the refrigerator.
1. Fill sterilised jars with your homemade fig jam and screw their lids on tightly.
2. Fig jam with rose geranium will keep for up to 12 months unopened. Refrigerate after opening.
3. My recipe makes approximately 2 x 500ml jars homemade fig jam with rose geranium.
