Strawberry Figs

Dwana Townsend


I started cooking when I was just 12 yrs old. This is a recipe I used to make with my mother during fig season. I would go out and climb in my grandmothers tree to gather as many figs as I could. Most of the time I would eat one and pick one, my grandmother's tree was about 50 yrs old had the best Celeste figs.

Now I have my own fig tree and each season I make this jelly and give some to friends and family. They all look forward to the fig jam. I have passed this recipe to my son as he is turning out to be a better cook than I am, but I don't think he will ever out do My Mawmaw or mo
