Recipe by Busters friend
READY IN: 1hr 5mins


  • 4
    cups fresh figs, measured after cooking (about 5 - 6 cups fresh raw loosely packed)
  • 14
    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
  • 12
    cup white sugar (granulated cane)
  • 1 34
    ounces no-sugar-needed pectin (I use Ball)
  • 58
    ounce no-sugar-needed pectin (1/2 package)


  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Sprinkle the pectin into the fruits & mix well to avoid any lumps.
  • Bring the fig, strawberry, juice mix to a hard boil that can't be stirred down - watch & stir to avoid scorching.
  • 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).
  • Lid & process 10 minutes for 1/2 pints & 15 minutes for pints.
