    This is one of DH's favorite preserves. The recipe came from his grandmother. Prep and cook times are approximate. I'm not sure of the yield, so I'm guessing.

      Very easy! And YUMMY! First batch I smashed with a fork. It turned out great, but I wanted a smoother texture. Second batch I put the figs through a blender first and it was perfect! I've received many compliments... now I'm getting crazy and using peach jello instead of strawberry... tastes wonderful!

      Love this recipe!! I used 2/3 c. sugar instead of the 3 c. in the recipe. My mom had made this same recipe before and said that it was too sweet for her with the 3 c. of sugar. I also figured that the strawberry jello is sweetened. Also, I used my food processor to process the figs whole and then added the sugar and jello and processed to combine all the ingredients. Then I followed the instructions starting at #2. People cannot believe that it is made with figs. The seeds from the figs make it look just like strawberry seeds. It was perfect!!

      Wonderful recipe! I picked figs with my grandfather in his back yard and made them two weekends in a row! They have a great taste, and a beautiful red color! Will make great Christmas gifts! Thanks, Dreamgoddess!
