        How many pounds of figs do you think used?

        I am not sure how many pounds but I bought about 4 pints. I cut them up and measured them by the cup.

    Good Evening Arlene, I adore figs and when I lived on the Island of Cyprus in the Mediterranean I had two fig trees in my garden, so I had an abundance of figs in October and November. Now that I live in England I have to buy figs from the market, so I have printed your recipe for Fig Preserve so that I am ready and waiting for the season to arrive. Although I will have to wait until the end of the year, I am definitely going to be enjoying Fig Preserve.
    Thank you for your recipe I really can’t wait to try it.
    Best Wishes

    I’d love to try this. I think figs wouldn’t be terribly sweet making for a savory jam good for appetizers.

    Thanks for linking up at Motivation Monday!

    Hate to be “that guy” but I am sure those are black mission figs.

      BeBe I would love to have a fig tree! Years ago I planted one but we had couple of hurricanes that year and it didn’t make it. I always add a bit of butter or margarine when I am cooking my jams. It cuts way back on the foam.

    Oh..and btw…my Brown Turkey figs get that dark too…..some years darker than others…l think it is related to the amount of rainfall :)

    Just found jars of my moms homemade fig preserves…how long can you safely keep and eat them?

      Homemade Jams and Jelly should be discarded after 1 year. After that it is no longer safe to consume.
