Fig Jam 2

  • 2 qt Chopped figs, about 5 lbs
  • 6 cup Sugar
  • 3/4 cup Water
  • 1/4 cup Lemon juice image placeholder

To prepare chopped figs, cover figs with boiling water. Let stand 10 minutes. Drain, stem and chop figs. Combine figs, sugar, and 3/4 cup water in a large sauce pot.

Bring slowly to a boil, stirring until sugar dissolves. Cook rapidly until thick. Stir frequently to prevent sticking. Add lemon juice and cook 1 minute longer. Pour hot into hot jars, leaving 1/4 head space. Adjust caps.

Process 15 minutes in boiling water bath.
