    Rita~'s Note:

    This year my figs were slow to ripen so I made this recipe using peaches and Vanilla Fig Preserves. You can use 1 or all three vanilla, cinnamon, or ginger. I used all three and it was delish.

      This is our new favorite preserve/jam recipe! (I used an immersion blender to chop the larger pieces of fruit, so mine was more like a jam than preserves.) The fig and peach flavors are totally kicked up a notch by the addition of the lemon, cinnamon, and ginger (I had no vanilla pod, so I just left it out). I made this twice; the first time was slightly better. I was a bit more heavy handed with the fruit, and the flavor of the first batch was a bit "brighter." I cooked the first batch 16 minutes and the consistency was perfect! The second batch took about 21 minutes to be ready. Great recipe!
