Fresh Fig Jam Recipe
4 c. fresh figs
3 c. sugar
Juice of 1 lemon
Thin sliced lemon rind (about 1/4 lemon)
1/4 tsp. ground cloves
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1. Pour boiling water over figs. Let stand 10 minutes. Drain, stem and chop figs. Measure and add 1/2 cup water and sugar to figs. Slowly bring to a boil, stirring occasionally until sugar dissolves. Cook rapidly until thick.
2. Stir frequently to prevent sticking. Add lemon juice and spices and cook 1 minute longer. Pour into hot sterilized jars to 1/2 inch from top. Seal. Process 15 minutes in a boiling water bath.
