Fig (Fruit) Preserve
How to Make Fig (Fruit) Preserve
- Pick fresh figs. Figs are ready to eat when they are brown. I picked both figs that were brown and ready to use right away and some that were half green and half brown since I have get my figs from someone else. Figs are very sticky so bring some wipes with you if you are at a location with no water, like I was.
- Prepare jelly glasses and lids for canning
- Wash your very sticky figs and cut off ends and put them in the pot. I am not sure if you need to cut the bottom, I just do. Make sure you use a big pot. I make sure I use one that has twice the space. Make sure you leave enough room so you can smash your fruit with a potato masher and not burn your hands from the fig lava.
