Strawberry Banana Fig Preserves

Betty Warren


This is another recipe that I got from my grandmother, Ethel McFarland. You add jello to the figs and they look just like strawberries. I added strawberry banana jello to these and turned out very good.

How to Make Strawberry Banana Fig Preserves


  1. Mash figs up in boiler and start to cook, add 3 cups of sugar. Recipe calls for 1 cup sugar for every cup of figs, but I dont use that much. They are to sweet to me. I use about 1/2 the sugar called for in the recipe.
  2. Add large box of Jello. Recipe usually calls for Strawberry Jello but I change it up and sometimes add strawberry banana jello or Raspberry.
  3. Let come to a boil and cook for about 3 to 5 minutes. Then put into your processed jars and seal as normal. Be sure and keep your jars,lids and rings hot until ready to use them. After jars are filled and lids on, process jars in hot water bath for about 5 minutes.
    Keep out of any drafts until they seal. DONE
