|2 quarts||Chopped figs, about 5 lbs|
|¼ cup||Lemon juice|
To prepare chopped figs, cover figs with boiling water. Let stand 10 minutes. Drain, stem and chop figs.
Combine figs, sugar, and ¾ c. water in a large sauce pot. Bring slowly to a boil, stirring until sugar dissolves. Cook rapidly until thick. Stir frequently to prevent sticking. Add lemon juice and cook 1 minute longer.
Pour hot into hot jars, leaving ¼" head space. Adjust caps.
Process 15 minutes in boiling water bath.
Yield: About 5 pints
