Blueberry Fig Jam • Fruit Only

Blueberries be jammin’ in this simple sweet spread made from only fruit. Blueberries and figs are BFFs in my book that’s why I’m pairing them up in this jar of purple goodness. Dates bring their much-loved sweet personality to the party too, leaving no room for added sugar.

And if you’re like me, then you’ll leave it chunky with a few whole blueberries peaking through.

No sugar allowed. This is a fruit only jam, so save the coconut sugar and maple syrup for another time. A mixture of plump juicy blueberries and sweet dried fruit lends all the sweet this jar of jam needs.

This jam is super easy to make: Jam ingredients go into a food processor. Everything spins around for a bit. Jam comes out of the food processor. Done.

It also happens to be raw! Even though I don’t make as many raw recipes as I used to, I still love the ease of simple fruit-based raw recipes. A new website that I’m loving is LFRVrecipes.com. There is a lovely collection of sweet and savory raw recipes over there, and I’ve even contributed a few of my own.

What to do with it?

  • Spread it on bread
  • Top a bowl of ice cream
  • Sandwich with some PB or AB
  • Dollop on top of oatmeal
  • Top a stack of pancakes
  • Make a pie
  • Or save it for a breakfast recipe I’ll be sharing later this week!

Blueberry Fig Jam

2.5 cups blueberries (I used frozen and thawed)

1/2 cup dried figs

1/2 cup pitted medjool dates

  1. Process the dried figs, dates, and 1.5 cups of the blueberries.
  2. Pulse in the last cup of blueberries for a chunky consistency.
  3. The sweetness will depend on how ripe and tasty your blueberries are, so taste it. If it’s not sweet enough add a few more dates and process again.
  4. Store in the fridge.

What’s your favorite way to eat jam?
