    This recipe appeared in the local paper a few years ago and the original recipe came from a woman named Bulah Baker. It is fabulous.

    My Private Note


    Serves: 96



    Units: US | Metric

    • 6 cups ripened figs
    • 3 cups sugar
    • 3 cups water
    • 2 medium navel oranges, thinly sliced (do not peel, but cut off and discard the ends)
    • 2 lemons, thinly sliced (do not peel, but cut off and discard the ends)


    1. 1
      Wash and drain the figs. Cut off the stems and coarsley chop. (The original recipe leaves the figs whole, but pierced with a fork.).
    2. 2
      Cook the water and sugar over medium heat until the sugar dissolves and the mixture comes to a full, rolling boil. Boil uncovered for 40-45 minutes over medium heat, stirring often. (Syrup should "sheet" from the back of a spoon.
    3. 3
      Pour figs, orange and lemon slices into the hot bubbling syrup. (The ratio is one cup sugar and one cup water to 2 cups figs.) Boil over medium heat, stirring gently, for 30-35 minutes. (The length of time depends on personal preference for thickness of the syrup.).
    4. 4
      Spoon into 3 pint-sized, sterilized canning jars, to within 1/4 inch from the top. Wipe the rims. Cover with metal lids and screw on the band. refrigerate or process for 10 minutes in a boiling bath.
