Ham & Baby Swiss Panini With Fig Jam


Ingredients For 2 Panini

  • 2 cups (10 ounces) coarsely chopped stemmed dried figs*
  • 2/3 cup apple cider or apple juice
  • 4 slices Swiss cheese
  • 4 slices marble rye bread
  • 4 thin slices deli smoked ham or honey ham
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened

*As an option, you can purchase ready-made fig jam or fig spread.

Preparation

  1. For fig jam, combine figs and apple cider in a medium saucepan; bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat; simmer uncovered until most of the liquid is absorbed and figs are tender, about 5 minutes. Cool slightly; transfer to a food processor and purée. Transfer mixture to a jar; refrigerate at least 30 minutes or up to 2 weeks. Makes about 1-1/3 cups jam.

  2. Arrange 1 slice of cheese over each slice of bread; top with ham. Close sandwiches; spread outsides evenly with butter.

  3. Cook sandwiches in a preheated panini maker or skillet iron until golden brown and cheese is melted, about 3 minutes.

  4. Serve each sandwich with 2 tablespoons jam for dipping or spreading inside. Reserve remaining jam to serve on toast or sliced fresh fruit.
