You will hear me talk about my grandmother more than once. She was one of the most incredible women I have known in my life. I adored her. I spent summers with her.
She let me have free access to her kitchen....at the age of 10, 12, 15, whenever I was there to visit.
She canned...a LOT! She made the best jams I have ever consumed.
Even in college, I begged for a few jars of whatever she recently put in jars. It was gold. It was wonderful.
I just wish she was here now so that I could get her to make this jam for me. I miss her.
3 cups fresh figs, peeled and mashed
2 3-ounce boxes of strawberry jello
3 cups sugar
Mix all ingredients and bring to boil over medium heat. Cook for 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Put into prepared canning jars and seal. Check your Mason/Ball jars for appropriate canning methods if you are unfamiliar. I will post some canning techniques at some point in the future.
This is my most favorite jam ever in the entire world! Enjoy.
