Figue Noire with Sweet Spices
What better way to kick off the festive season than with a black fig jam and... a touch of sweet spices. All French, of course, and made in the only jam factory in Paris!
Add to this a gentle blend of spices with comforting flavors to bring out the 'rounded' taste of the fig pieces: cinnamon, star anise, ginger, green cardamom and Kampot pepper from Cambodia.

Since ancient times, foodies have developed various recipes for preserving fruits by cooking them with wine or honey.
But to taste jams as we know them, you have to wait for the first crusades and the introduction of cane sugar from the Arab world. This luxury food allows the transformation of fruit into jam, only reserved for royal tables. At the beginning of the 19th century, the production of beet sugar democratized this product. In Paris, many jam makers opened their stalls and supplied themselves with fruit from the surrounding orchards.
