WOW! I made half the recipe because I didn't know for sure if I would like any kind of fig jam. I get figs off our tree down at the beach to put on flatbreads with goat cheese, etc. So I figured I would try this easy recipe, since I was already putting a good deal of figs into the dehydrator. Oh my goodness! Can I even wait till morning to put this on an English muffin? FABULOUS! I made half, used 8 oz canned crushed pineapple, undrained. I simmered it for nearly an hour to where it seemed a little syrupy to me. Then to check the consistency, I put about 2 tablespoons in a small pyrex bowl, and in a larger bowl with ice, to see how it would be. Perfect spreading consistency. This conserve is fantastic! If I can get yet enough figs off our tree I will be making the whole batch, many jars to give as gifts, and some saved for us! Dusty and Sarah, thanks for setting me right with my fig tree! 1/2 this recipe made exactly 4 half pint jars. Keep everything hot, seal, and turn upside down. They all sealed fine without the water bath.
- 2 lbs ripe figs
