Welcome to my recipe blog! I started it when my brother, Mark, moved away and was in need of some recipes....or so I thought.... The goal is to post recipes that can be made quickly, easily, and inexpensively. If you have something to contribute, please let me know and I will be glad to add it!!

Fig Jam

5 Cups ripe figs (I cut them into quarters; there is no need to peel - just take off the stems)
1 Cup Water
1/4 Cup Lemon Juice
1 Packet SurJel
7 Cups Sugar
4 8-oz jars

Mix 1/4 cup sugar with SurJel. Cook figs, water, lemon juice, and SurJel mixture until it comes to a full rolling boil. Boil for 3 minutes. Add remaining 6 3/4 cups sugar and cook until it comes to a full rolling boil again. Boil for one minute. Spoon into steralized jars* - makes about 5 1/2 8 oz jars.

*I steralize my jars by washing them in hot, soapy water, rinsing them and then putting them in the oven at 275 for about 15 minutes. It's a lot easier than boiling.

Credit to whom credit is due: I got the recipe from this blog.
