Fig Paste

Fig Paste

  • 500 g Fresh figs, Quartered
  • 500 g raw sugar
  • 125 g water
  • 125 g brandy
  • 1/2 lemon juice
  • 6
  • 7

    • Appliance TM 6 image
      Recipe is created for
      TM 6
      For cooking (simmering) at temperatures of 95°C or above (200°F), the simmering basket should always be used instead of the TM6 measuring cup, as the TM6 measuring cup fits tightly in the lid. The simmering basket rests loosely on top, is steam-permeable, and also prevents food spatter from the mixing bowl.

Recipe's preparation

    Fig paste
  1. 1. Place fig pieces in TM Bowl and measure in water and brandy

    2. Set timer to 7 mins 100* speed 1 use strainer basket on lid

    3. When finished, puree on speed 7 for 5 seconds

    4. Set scales and add sugar– (you can lessen the sugar a bit – however, by no more than 100g) and lemon juice

    5. Place lid on TM Bowl and blend on speed 4 for 30 seconds

    6. Set timer for 35 minutes, varoma temperature, speed 3

    7. Add strainer basket on top of lid (to prevent splatters)

    8. With 5 minutes left on the timer, remove strainer basket to allow for more evaporation

    9. Prepare a suitable dish to pour your paste into when ready

    10. When cooking time has finished check for setting point – the paste should be looking thick and when a small amount placed on a ceramic plate gells – it is ready to pour into your chosen mould

    11. The fig paste will look like a ruby when it is set - if you prefer a denser pinker look, upon completion of cooking time, place mc in lid and mix at speed 8 for about 20 seconds

I've made many variation of fig paste over the years, but this is the most consistent. I didn't bother with final whip.
I also replaced brandy with vermouth, so choose your desired alcohol
