    I cook my figs in a pot ( For every two cups of fresh figs, Put 3/4 cup of sugar ) and a little bit of water until they change color. Put them in a sterilized jar and processed for 10 min. In a stock pot of hot water. Pull them out, and let them cool. And then they are sealed. Then you may open a jar the next day and use it. ( scoop some figs out, cut them up, put them in a chopper,grined them up with the fresh figs juice. ) Then make the cake !
