Pigtown Design: We Be Jammin’


We be jammin’, to paraphrase the old Bob Marley song.

Indeed, I made Drunken Fig Jam from Epicurious. I knew I had a farewell dinner for my English cousins who’ve been visiting for the past few weeks, and thought the fig jam would be a perfect hors d’oeuvre for the dinner.I started the jam at night, mainly because the first step was to macerate the figs in sugar for an hour at room temperature. This brings out the juices, since aside from the juice, the only other liquid is the brandy bourbon.
