6. Remove jars from boiling water just before you're ready to use them, put on cooling racks

I've never used figs preserved except through jam. What are some ways you use whole figs? Are there any kid-friendly ideas you might suggest? What are some of the best varieties to preserve this way?

When processing, is this in a pressure canner or water bath?

Sounds so good!  I never thought of making a whole fig preserve.  Will have to try, if I get any figs to ripen and become larger than half a dime size.
