Fig preserves ala Strawberry and Raspberry Jell-O « Bayou Woman (My grandmother made this recipe for years as I grew up- she never told me they were figs until I reached my teens. I was totally duped- Best "strawberry jam" you'll ever eat!!)
Strawberry Fig Preserves | "Excellent recipe. I used 12 cups of figs, quartered and 6 cups of white sugar. I have also used orange jello. I simmered for thirty minutes before adding the jello and then proceeded as per recipe."
My mother used to make this when I was growing up, and it is delicious! My siblings and I loved to spread it on the homemade bread my mom would bake. My parents have fig trees in the backyard, and the fruit is so good and fresh.
