 Ingredients List

  • 6 lb Figs -- with stems attached
  • 5 lb Sugar


Sprinkle figs, unpeeled, with baking soda, and cover with boiling water;
slosh up and down, and drain well. Spray with clear water and drain. Place
figs in large stainless or granite pot. Pour sugar on top and allow to sit
overnight. Next day place on low fire and watch until syrup develops. Stir
very carefully, so as not to break the figs, until sugar is dissolved. Boil
to 222x224x. Allow to sit overnight to plump. Next morning bring to the
simmer, place in sterilized jars, seal, process in boiling water bath for
20 minutes. (Or place in fridge and eat). Makes 7 pints if it's done
precisely right. ;-
