Vegan MoFo: Jam Anyone?

Sadly I am still at work.  It's been a bit of a crazy week for me here and I'll be working all weekend.

I had hoped to write a bit about the fun I had making jams and butters with my sister and The Jolly Fox but work is keeping me busy and I can't write much.

We had a great time a few weeks ago making fig and pluot based jams.  We often found recipes for plum jams and subbed pluots in place of plums.  We made an apple pear butter as well.

The start of a beautiful jam

Lovely figs

I'm going to let the pictures do the talking!

MMM this is ready

Fresh Fig and Mint
Spiced Fig Jam
We got our fruits from the local farmers market and they were so fresh.  These jams & butters have been a huge hit so far.  Everyone who has tasted them has enjoyed them.  The only problem not enough!
Green pluot & Mint Jam
My sister took some to work and said they gobbled ate them with gusto.  Huge hit!

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend and enjoying Vegan MoFo!

Apple Pear Butter & Fig Jam


  1. Yum, I've never made jam or fruit butters. Will you be posting the recipes? Especially for the apple pear butter - sounds amazing!

  2. What fabulous colours. It's almost a shame to eat them.

  3. I'm so jealous of all your figs. They're always so hard to find here. I saw them once and poof, they were never to be seen again. I would love to have a bottle of that apple pear butter, I bet it tastes amazing.
