We used to eat fig preserves all the time when I was growing up. Everyone I knew had at least 1 fig tree in their yard. Now, I don't see many people that actually grow their own figs. In stores, there are dried figs, but I haven't tried make preserves with them.
8 cups fresh figs, with stems 8 cups sugar
Wash and rinse figs. Allow to dry in a large colander.
Pour figs and sugar into a large pot, mixing well. Cook over medium heat.
Stir periodically to keep figs from burning. Once the figs begin to release enough water to make a syrup, bring the mixture to a slow boil. Cook slowly for about 20-30 minutes, until figs and syrup are a dark amber color.
Seal in sterilized Jars.
