2Put figs in cooking pot,and add 3 cups of sugar and 1 box of large jello of your choice (strawberry). Stir and cook on medium heat until boiling,constantly stirring.A foam will form but will dissipate.
3Takes about 15-20 min..will turn a deep shade of red and will coat the spoon. As quickly as you can fill your jars and screw down tightly. Immerse jars into boiling water bath making sure the jars are covered,boil for 10-15 min.
