In a large preserving pan, combine the fresh sliced figs, crab apples, lemon juice and brandy and cook for 2 hours over a low-medium heat until the mixture is soft and mushy.
Mash the fruit and add the sugar. Bring to the boil for 10 minutes and then begin testing for the setting point by placing a drop of the jam onto a cold plate. If it wrinkles when you push it with your finger, it is ready.
Skim the jam if necessary and transfer to sterilised jam jars, sealing immediately. Leave undisturbed for 8 hours in a cool, dark place.
