Our Provence fig jam is a regional specialty that is made exclusively with figs from Solliès-Pont in the French department of Var. This jam gets its unique, sweet and sour flavour from a distinctive microclimate, maximal sunshine and traditions that have been passed down from generation to generation. The figs that we use come from the same groves as the famous figs that have been recognised as a “Fig of Solliès”, a PDO label (Protected Designation of Origin), since 2011. The Solliès-Pont fig is a purple fig with a red flesh belonging to the black Bourjassotte variety. It is one of the tastiest varieties of figs with its sweet, juicy taste. The figs are harvested at their best when they are fully ripe in September. We choose them from the Solliès cooperative. They are then sliced and made into jam in our kitchens using traditional methods.
This jam can be eaten on toast for breakfast, but can also be used as a chutney for cheeses, terrines or foie gras.
