Strawberry Fig Preserves

Recipe by Dreamgoddess

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!
