    It has been years since I have done any canning. I have made this recipe over and over. It actually won me a couple of ribbons in State Fairs.

      I am rating this 5 stars based on the second time I made this. Both times I used the ingredients as listed however the first time I cooked it for an hour but I use a wide saute pan which must evaporate at a higher rate because it cooled as hard as a rock - could hardly get a spoon into it. The second time I used a candy thermometer and took it off the heat when it hit gel point at 221 degrees (after 25 minutes) and it is a perfect consistency. Also, I didn't like the waste of peeling the figs so the second time I just removed the stems and sliced the figs and just before adding the walnuts I used an immersion blender and amazingly it just pulverized and incorporated the skins into a beautiful coloured jam but amazingly left the fig seeds whole. A very lovely looking and tasting jam. Thanks PaulaG!

      Great recipe. So easy to make and the jam was delicious (even though I forgot to add the nuts). I poured some over a block of neufchatel cheese, sprinkled with walnuts and served with sesame crackers. It was a huge hit.

      Literally just signed up for a Food.com account to rate this recipe (and I've been using Food.com for over a year for recipes). This is THE BEST jam!!! Make it (it's so easy), don't change a thing and enjoy on everything (I even eat it straight off a spoon for a quick snack)! Thanks so much to PaulaG for sharing her wonderful recipe for us fig lovers. :)
