1/1 Photo of Southern Fig Preserves
Another of grandma's specialty jams; she got this from a childhood friend of hers. If you're familiar with jam making, these instructions will probably be very clear to you. But for me--I'd need a book like "Preserving for Dummies":) I wonder if there is a book like that, and if there is, let me know!!!! *Again, I'm estimating that prep time and cooking time are both the same--I'm not sure and the recipe doesn't say, so if you know, note me with times and I'll post them.*
My Private Note
- 1Combine the whole figs, sugar, and lemon juice in a large saucepan.
- 2Cook and stir until the sugar is dissolved and the juice is as thick as desired (Grandma uses a candy thermometer and stops at the soft-ball stage).
- 3Pour the mixture into hot, sterilized canning jars, cap, and store.
- 4*Can also be used in homemade jam cakes.
