This fig jam keeps for weeks, so if you like, make it well ahead of time. Try to use lemon thyme, if possible. These bars are good with a dollop of whipped cream.

Was given 2# of fresh figs and wasn't sure what to do with them. Had to make GF/DF adaptations - still turned out great.[ 1/2 cup gluten free flour and 1 cup almond meal in place of all purpose flour. 4 oz Earth Balance in place of butter]
Delicious! I might try it with a little less sugar next time because my figs were so sweet. Otherwise, fabulous. Especially the crust.
I love this recipe - have made it many times. My neighbour has a fig tree so we get buckets of figs all at once - this is a great way to use over ripe fruit. I use a bit more lemon juice and serve it warm with ice cream as a dessert - great for dinner parties as you can make the jam ahead of time, then assemble and stick in the oven on the night. Always a hit!
The crumble crust is delicious! I recommend chilling before cutting to make neat squares. Quite tasty & a good use for extra figs.
