    Default Fig Jam

    2 quart chopped figs, about 5 lbs
    6 cup sugar
    3/4 cup water
    1/4 cup lemon juice

    To prepare chopped figs, cover figs with boiling water. Let stand 10
    minutes. Drain, stem and chop figs.
    Combine figs, sugar, and 3/4 c. water in a large sauce pot. Bring slowly
    to a boil, stirring until sugar dissolves. Cook rapidly until thick. Stir
    frequently to prevent sticking. Add lemon juice and cook 1 minute longer.

    Pour hot into hot jars, leaving 1/4" head space. Adjust caps. Process 15
    minutes in boiling water bath.

    Yield: About 5 pints

    Yum, we planted fig trees a few years ago, but they haven;t really taken off very well. I'd love to get enough figs to make this jam this year! It sounds delicious.
