Simple Small Batch Fig Preserves

Juice of 1 lemon
3/4 cup sugar
2 tbsp honey (optional)
1 pound of figs

Step 1. Wash and trim stems from figs
2. Puree figs using a food processor, blender, or immersion blender
3. Add fig puree and all other ingredients into saucepan
4. Begin sterilizing canning jars (add jars to water and bring to boil)
5. Cook over medium high heat, stirring often to prevent burning, cook from 30-50 minutes depending on how thick you'd like your preserves
6. Remove jars from water, place on cooling rack, and begin ladling preserves into jars, make sure lids are tight and secure
7. Carefully lower filled jars into boiling water, allow to process for 15 minutes, remove jars from water and allow to cool on racks

I just made a small batch (2 pounds of figs) using this recipe, my first ever attempt at jarring anything.   The figs in my jam came from my Black Mission and Chicago Hardy trees, giving more of a raspberry color than a honey colored jam.   So easy and very tasty.   The yield was 4 half pint jelly jars.   If I were to make any adjustments next time, I would use only 3/4 of the optional honey. 

After this batch cools, I'll check to make sure all the jars sealed and then try it on some French Toast.  If the jars sealed properly and the jam is usable, pictures will follow of both the jam and the jam on French Toast.
Wish List: Smith, White Madeira, Buzzone Nero, Black Bethlehem, Brooklyn White, Marseilles Black VS, Cravens Craving, Golden Riverside
