Total Time 4 hours 15 minutes
Servings 32 ounces


  • 2 pounds whole figs about 20
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • cup molasses
  • 3 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp pumpkin spice


  • Cut the stems off the figs & slice them in half. Place figs in the slow cooker.
  • Add sugar, brown sugar, molasses, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, and pumpkin spice - cover.
  • Cook on high approx 3-4 hours- stirring occasionally. If it looks like the figs are breaking down faster or it is getting too thick, you can reduce the heat, shorten the cooking time or add a splash of water to thin it out.
  • Once figs are falling apart- use an immersion blender to break up any large pieces.
  • Transfer to sterilized jars. Allow to cool at room temperature & then store in freezer or up to 3 months


NOTE-  all slow cookers will cook a bit differently, some much hotter than others. So if you need to reduce the time because it is cooking too quickly, or add some water to thin it out, that is okay to reach the desired result.
