The figs are coming in & wanted a recipe to preserve their summery goodness. I keep these in the fridge for now but will try to can at some point. I use these for Fig Upside Down Cake, alongside vanilla ice cream, mixed into homemade vanilla & lemon gelato, on greek yogurt for breakfast & right out of the jar just because they are so good!
