Fig Cinnamon Jam

Adapted from this recipe

2 1/4 cups of sugar
1 1/2 cup of water
3 lbs of black figs (about 30 figs)
1 teaspoon of lemon zest
1/2 lemon juice
2 cinnamon sticks

Combine the sugar and the water in a large pot and heat until the sugar is dissolved.

Meanwhile, quarter the figs. Add the figs and the rest of the ingredients into the pot with the sugar water, and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, and simmer for 1 hour, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and allow the jam to cool. Spread on everything you can find, or eat directly with a spoon.
