Fig Strawberry Preserves Recipe

I'm looking for a recipe for my Pop-pop. He says his mother used to make fig-strawberry preserves and he is wanting some. I tried one recipe about 2 years ago, but it did not come out well (and yes, I know how to make preserves). Can anyone help me with this?

This is the recipe I've used for years. There's really nothing hard about it, although I'm not one to cook to "ball stages" and such.

3 cups figs (cut off ends & mash)

3 cups sugar

1 large (or 2 small) boxes strawberry Jello

Mix all ingredients in pan. Cook over medium - high heat. When mixture comes to a boil, continue cooking for 7 minutes. Place in jars and seal.
