When a friend gives you figs.....

...make fig preserves. A wonderful friend shared some of these huge figs from her tree with me!  I adore fig preserves.  So, of course, I made some. That is my son's hand. My arms aren't that hairy!!
Simply cook with equal parts sugar until it begins to thicken.
Add lemon slices.
Yummy.
Y'all come back,

  6. Oh yum! I don't believe I have ever had fig preserves, but I do love figs, so I'm sure the preserves must be wonderful too.

  8. Beautiful-looking figs! They are making my mouth water! Thanks for giving us the "recipe" too!

    By the way, I'm about a week behind in my posting...I'm with you about that mailbox in the wall. I think it would be great if it opened from the inside as well!

  9. I love figs too. But the ones I remember from our fig tree were large and purple. That jam looks sooo good.
