My deep East TX childhood meant canceling plans to hurry & pick these off our backyard tree and get them processed ASAP. TX Figs are high in sugar (some years more juicy than others) & spoil within a day or two. I do not recommend using dried fruit for this recipe, ladies.

How to Make Brown Sugar Fig Preseves

Step-by-Step

  1. (Harvest) trim stems, wash & cut each fruit in half. Sprinkle w/ fruit fresh as you go to keep fresh. Fold in brown sugar gently. Avoid/ minimize crushing fruit.
    *FYI* use microwave safe (glass) bowl that is at least 2quarts, or @ twice the volume of the fruit.
    If your bowl is only 1-1.5 quart, I'd work w/ 1/2 batch at a time, to prevent the mess of boiling over
  2. Cover, heat on high & Bring to a boil in microwave. Uncover & continue simmering on medium for 5-10 minutes, Stir every minute. Some of the juice will cook out, so just keep them on heat just until the juicy goodness has fully dissolved that sugar & you notice it clings a bit to the wooden spoon.
  3. Remove from heat; stir in amaretto & liquid pectin. Transfer to jars w/ canning lids.
    Process filled jars in boiling water for 10 minutes. Remove & check seals per the Ball directions.
