2 qt Chopped figs, about 5 lbs
6 c Sugar
3/4 c Water
1/4 c Lemon juice
To prepare chopped figs, cover figs with boiling water. Let stand 10
minutes. Drain, stem and chop figs.
Combine figs, sugar, and 3/4 c. water in a large sauce pot. Bring slowly to
a boil, stirring until sugar dissolves. Cook rapidly until thick. Stir
frequently to prevent sticking. Add lemon juice and cook 1 minute longer.
Pour hot into hot jars, leaving 1/4" head space. Adjust caps. Process 15
minutes in boiling water bath.
Yield: About 5 pints
