We drew names for Christmas this year (big family blow out – my out of state siblings and families are coming in, as well as my aunt and cousin from New Mexico). I did still want to make something for everyone, so I settled on jam. And since the Heavenly Fig Jam I made earlier this year was such a hit (seriously, the BF practically eats with a spoon), I figured I had to make more of that.
This was the maximum number of jars I could fit in my canner, minus one 8 oz jar I managed not to fill. I really like this recipe – it uses dried figs, and powdered pectin, so you could make it pretty much any time of year.
