Foolproof Fig Paste in a Slow Cooker

This fig paste is so easy to make and absolutely decadent on any cheese platter, on toast or even over Vanilla Ice Cream. You can't screw it up!


Slow Cooker Fig Paste, so easy to make and absolutely decadent on any cheese platter, on toast or even over vanilla Ice Cream! You can't screw it up.

All you need are 12 figs, jam setting sugar, and a slow cooker.

Our neighbours have a crazy-ginormous fig tree that spills over onto our side of the fence. This year the yield is out of control. We've had to net both sides to keep the fruit bats and possums from stealing our haul.

Until we moved into our house I had never eaten a fresh fig. The sweetness and complex taste is something I couldn't have imagined (Fig Newton Cookies have lied). Once you pick them though, they don't last long. I've been eating figs whole, putting them on oatmeal, in smoothies in cakes but wanted to do something with a big batch- thus my hunt for a paste recipe.


Fig Fail

This recipe failed due to user error (aka it was my fault, aka there nothing wrong with this actual recipe itself). I mean, this process is difficult. Doing it on the stovetop is as delicate as making caramel. Have you ever tried that? Me neither. too hard.

I'm always seeking out ways to cut down on kitchen time. I LOVE food but life gets busy, ya know? (Do you like artwork? I've been making lots.) I scoured the interwebs for a crockpot friendly fig recipe to no avail. What's this? A niche that needs filling? It's like a bloggers dream. Ha, seriously though. Every single February since I posted this recipe, it goes bonkers on the search engines.

I'll end the suspense and get down to the recipe. Here are the results of my experiment. It's easy. You can't ruin it. The end result might be a little more like a jam consistency than a paste but no less DELISH.
