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?
Cheri from Texas
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.
my recipe is the same as dinkly except i use 6 cups of mashed figs. i use a potato masher to mash the figs.
I use the same receipe (6 cups mashed figs) and I also use the juice of one lemon.
