We had a fig party this week, and by fig party I mean we made lots of strawberry figs!
The last time Susan and I got to make figs was three years ago and there was only one child between the two of us...now there are four which makes things a little more interesting!
When Adam heard that we were making figs, he and Fincher came over to join in the fun and eat a biscuit when the jam was done!
It was a fun and busy day, but we've got 20 pints of jam and that's definitely worth the hard work!
If you've got access to figs and want to make some here ya go!
4 cups of blended figs
3 cups of sugar
2 small boxes of strawberry jello
Mix all ingredients in a large boiler. Once the mixture comes to a boil, start your timer for seven minutes continuing to stir. Remove from heat after 7 minutes. Pour into sterilized jars and seal. Let cool.
Yields 5 half pints per recipe.
