How to Make FIG PRESERVES/JAM
- 9REMOVE JARS FROM THE DISHWASHER, SPACING THEM OUT ON A CLEAN TOWEL NEXT TO THE LARGE BURNER ON YOUR STOVE.
LADEL MIXTURE INTO CANNING JARS (LEAVING 1/4" HEADWAY) USING FUNNEL TO KEEP TOP EDGES CLEAN.
WHEN ALL ARE FILLED, CLEAN TOP EDGE OF JARS IF NECESSARY(WITH A DAMP PAPER TOWEL)TO ENSURE A CLEAN SEAL.
