We have fig trees at my mom's and dad always made this recipe. Everyone swore it was strawberries but in fact figs have the same texture. Hope you try it.
2 qt. sliced figs
6 cups sugar
2 (3oz) pkg strawberry flavored gelatin
1 (1-3/4 oz) powdered fruit pectin.
Combine the first three ingredients in a large saucepan and let stand until syrup forms. Bring to a boil over a full flame. Continue boiling 20 minutes. Add the fruit pectin. Continue boiling 2 minutes. Pour into sterilized jars. Seal immediately.
