For every 2 cups of figs you put in a stockpot to cook put 3/4 cup of sugar then add your water, cook them until they change color and you will have more juice too. Then put them in sterilized jar that you put in another pot of hot boiling water and processed for about 10 minutes then let cool hear them seal up. you may open them the next day.
If there is any jars that didn't seal right, use them up first. When you choose your figs, pick the ripest ones first, then go from there.
