Get figgy this Christmas with award winning Fig Preserve

fig preserve

Our award winning Fig Preserve is a stunning sweet and sticky jam inspired by a family recipe.

The delightful preserve wowed judges in the prestigious Great Taste Awards and won a Gold star. The judges said: “Mammy Jamia’s Fig Preserve has a very nice colour and alluring aroma. It’s a simple preserve that starts gently and creeps up on you.”

It is perfect served on hot buttery toast, with cheese, stirred into porridge or yoghurt, or can even be used to make homemade fig tarts – a change from traditional mince pies this Christmas.

Mammy Jamia’s Fig Preserve costs £2.39 for a 340g jar and is available in Waitrose, Booths and Ocado.
