FIG Paste


Print:
4

Ingredients

0 portion(s)

  • 500 g fig flesh, inc skin
  • 250 g water
  • Juice of ½ lemon
  • 500 g raw sugar
5

Recipe's preparation

    • Place fig pieces in TM Bowl and measure in water
    • Place lid on TM Bowl, set timer to 7 mins 100* speed 1 -  leave MC in.
    • When finished, puree on speed 7 for 5 seconds.
    • Set scales and add sugar– (you can lessen the sugar a bit – however, by no more than 100g) and lemon juice
    • Place lid on TM Bowl and blend on speed 4 for 30 seconds
    • Set timer for 30 minutes, varoma temperature, speed 3.5strainer basket on top of lid (to prevent splatters)
    • With 8 minutes left on the timer, strainer basket can be removed to allow for more evaporation.
    • Cooking time can be extended a little (5 minutes) and this will give a thicker more solid paste.
    • Prepare a suitable dish to pour your paste into when ready – I use a square cake tin 18cm x 18cm – a ceramic baking tray is fine similar dimensions. The smaller the dish the thicker the paste. Line with baking paper – mitre the corners of the paper for a good fit. Alternatively, silicone moulds are fine.
    • 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.
    • 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 - this whips it up and brings some air into it and makes it more opaque with a different finish.

Tip

  • When cool and set, the paste can be cut and wrapped in food grade cello paper and given as gifts or stored in layers (use glad go betweens) in an air tight container in pantry. (use hygiene gloves or sterile utensils only when handling as this is good breeding ground for bacteria) Will keep easily for 6 months like this
  • Plums are plentiful right now and this is a great alternative to quince paste

    Delish! Loved this recipe. I think it’s more like a jam, but I’m using it for both and it’s amaing! Speed 3.5 was too fast I think. I reduced it down to speed 3, and it was perfect. Great way to use up fogs on special! Yay!

    Love the flavour of this. Mine turned out more like jam, but that's ok. It's still delicious. I used it to dribble in the top of a gluten free cake that I usually put sliced fruit on and it was perfect for that too.

    Hi. I'm making this now. Seems nice and simple. Hope it sets. *grin*  I wonder about the speed??? It seems very fast. I'm using the newest Thermomix...5. Did everyone do use the 3.5 speed? I've turned it down to 3 when I took the basket off at 8 mins. Thanks. *grin*

    This is delicious! Very easy recipe too. mine didn't set as much as I would like, so next time might cook a bit longer. still tasted delicious, just not as easy to cut. great on a cheese board.

    Submitted by Raimondo on 18. April 2015 - 18:03.

    Thanks for the recipe and the 750g fig, 400 g sugar.. it worked a treat.  figs are ripe but not dripping with juice like they were a fortnight ago.  Maybe it could have come off at the 30 minute mark but we took the extra 5 and it is now setting brilliantly...can't wait, not too sweet - can taste as much fig as sweetness (commercial brands so sweet the fruit could almost be anything - but this is definitely lovely fig paste....(will be interesting to see if it unmolds from the fluted ramekin tho....that will be interesting...Thanks everyone.

    Yum! Can't wait till mine is set!

    I made 1.5 times the recipe as I have an over-abundance of figs at the moment (quite a fertile tree!) and just cooked it for longer.. Next time I'll add less sugar, as it was very sweet, but it's still delicious (licking the spatula).  The method didn't state how to cool the mix. Im presuming benchtop, and not the fridge? Cheers!

  • Great recipe. I didn't have

    Submitted by ajreilly on 28. May 2014 - 15:38.

    Great recipe. I didn't have that many figs so I had to 1/3 the recipe and i still needed less sugar, it's a bit too sweet for my palate, but some people like that. I also halved the cook time for this amount but could have cooked a bit less still. It's in my collection and will use it again
