I have used strawberry, grape and peach jello and are all very good. The juice from the mashed figs is your liquid. You may have to adjust your times on cooking as I did and put my times in the directions. And I also have tried with real strawberries and made it chunky but I prefer the smooth. Give it a try and let me know how it turns out.

How to Make Fig Preserves (Jelly) Strawberry,Grape,Peach

Step-by-Step

  1. Prepare your jars...wash figs and cut off stems. Mash with potato masher or put in food processor is what I did.
