— MAKES ABOUT 400 G

1 - Use a pair of scissors or a small knife to cut dried figs into small pieces.
2 - Place all the ingredients except walnuts in a medium pot.
3 - Bring to a boil on high heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer for about 30 minutes.
4 - Discard the tea bag an fold in walnuts (if using).
Store in a jar in the fridge for up the month.
Enjoy on your favorite bread with apple slices and a simmering cup of earl grey.
You can also eat the jam with yoghurt or serve it on a cheese plate (vegan or not).
- I like the chunky texture of this jam but if you like it smoother, mix it with an immersion blender before you fold in walnuts.
- When using one tea bag you’ll end up with a subtle earl grey flavour. If you want it stronger use two tea bags instead.
- Feel free to experiment with other dried fruits and tea flavours ( jasmine-apricots / roiboos-plums / sencha-apple ).
