I just finished making these preserves and they were VERY flavorful. I had a little leftover after canning that I just had to taste. I had no idea what to expect since I have never eaten figs other than in fig newtons. I was pleasantly surprised. I read the other reviews about the figs being whole and being packed in the syrup and the directions noted being careful when stirring not to break apart the figs. Therefore I worked on keeping the figs whole. They turned out just fine but next time I would stir towards the end of the cooking time and allow the figs to break open after softening. I noticed that the lovely lady who submitted the recipe had a photo of her fig preserves and they appeared to have the figs more dispersed throughout the syrup. Great recipe and pretty easy too!
Wow! Very tasty. I doubled the recipe and still only ended up with 4 pint sized jars but still totally worth it. Mine ended up freezer jam as my jars were too big/pots too small to do the final immersion. But it is so good that I am perfectly happy with it. I followed the recipe only difference is when I open a new jar I stick a knife in there and chop everything up a little. My and my husband's favorite way to eat it is on a toasted english muffin with some peanut butter. Mmmmm. Maybe next year I'll make it with the smaller jars and give some away but this year it is mine all mine.:)
Delicious!! I tweaked this a bit...my kids like jam...not preserves. I followed this recipe exactly except that I blended the mix to turn it into a jam. I continued to cook it until the recipe was reduced to a jam-like consistency. My kids gobbled up a sample on toast while I was canning it....not sure one of the jars will make it to storage before it disappears!!!;)
i have made this recipe numerous times now and it is fantastik.. i have used just lemon juice and i have used the fresh lemon and both were delish.. my friends and neighbors beg me for them. having 6 trees in my neighbors yard i do stay busy. the only change i make is that i cut the figs up. most of the time im using them for fig newtons anyhow. btw store bought fig newtons do not have real figs in them. but mine do..lol. great job
