Fig Vinegar – National Fig Week Continues!

In celebration of National Fig week, we’ve shared tarts, a salad, and now, Fig Vinegar!  This delicious vinegar can be used in salad dressings, barbecue sauce, even in your water!  I love to put a splash in a glass of iced, sparkling water (and it’s good for you)!


What you need:

  • 5 fresh figs
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup water
  • 2 cups vinegar (champagne, white wine, white balsamic)


How to Do it:

Cut the figs into quarters.  Simmer with the sugar and the water for about an hour, until the figs are falling apart and the sugar is completely dissolved.  Add 1 ½ cups of the vinegar and simmer on low for another 30 minutes.  Pour the entire contents into a jar with the remaining ½ cup of vinegar.  Cover and refrigerate for at least one week.


Strain the contents of the jar to remove the larger pieces of fig.


Strain a second time through a coffee filter.


Pour into a jar, cork, label and refrigerate.  Will last about 6 months to a year in the refrigerator.

Use on salads, fresh fruits and vegetables, in barbeque sauce or mixed with sparkling water to drink!

Makes about 10 – 12 oz. of vinegar
