    Buster's friend's Note:

    Came up with this low sugar recipe after being overwhelmed by light & heavy syrups while canning whole figs. Lots of figs around here now - free for the picking as not too many folks eat them anymore (Whaaaat?). It has a bright fresh flavor - when DH taste tested he ate all the extra from the first batch (about a 1/2 cup overage). Ordinarily he is a taste & go kind of guy so I knew it was good. I use the extra pectin as I like a firmer set. Leave out the extra pectin if you want a softer set (low sugar pectin seems to set softer for me). I added the extra lemon juice (bottled for the standardized pH) for safety's sake. No point in making the stuff just to get knocked off by it. The lemon definitely enhances.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    1/2 pints

    Units: US | Metric

    • 4 cups fresh figs, measured after cooking (about 5 - 6 cups fresh raw loosely packed)
    • 1/4 cup lemon juice, bottled
    • 1 cup strawberry, sliced, heaping
    • 1 cup white grape juice, less 3 tablespoons
    • 3 tablespoons lemon juice, bottled
    • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
    • 1/2 cup white sugar (granulated cane)
    • 1 3/4 ounces no-sugar-needed pectin (I use Ball)
    • 5/8 ounce no-sugar-needed pectin (1/2 package)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Place figs and 1/4 cup bottled lemon juice in a 3 quart saucepan & bring to a boil. Simmer until figs fall apart easily when stirred, about 20 minutes.
    2. 2
      Add strawberries to figs, along with grape juice & the 3 T lemon juice - put the 3 T lemon juice in the one cup measure then fill with grape juice to the one cup measure.
    3. 3
      Sprinkle the pectin into the fruits & mix well to avoid any lumps.
    4. 4
      Bring the fig, strawberry, juice mix to a hard boil that can't be stirred down - watch & stir to avoid scorching.
    5. 5
      Add the sugar & bring to a boil. Boil hard for 3 minutes & then place in hot sterilized jars (I use the boiling water bath to sterilize the jars when they come out of the dishwasher).
    6. 6
      Lid & process 10 minutes for 1/2 pints & 15 minutes for pints.

      Really Excellent. Easy to make and nicely tart. I used splenda and It worked fine. The combination of fig and strawberry was a outstanding choice. This is great for a gift. Thanks for the recipe.

      Seriously the best use of figs I've ever tasted. If you didn't like figs before, you will now.
