      Delicious! I didn't follow the recipe exactly, instead, melding suggestions from other readers. I cut the figs in half and used lemon juice only so that I wouldn't have to process the figs. It turned out beautifully. Had it on toast with cream cheese, and will use it for a pork loin stuffed with goat cheese and fig preserves.

      This is a perfect southern fig preserves recipe although instead of water I used the juice from the lemon. I left mine whole too. I just love mashing the whole figs into a hot buttered biscuit. Thanks for the recipe.

      I'm posting another review, though it's not from me, but from the entire town of Butternut, WI, where it won 1st place in the county fair. I sent several jars home with my uncle who was visiting Louisiana from Wisconson. His wife just called to tell me she had entered them and they had won. Now that's a review!!
