      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.

      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.
