Fig Preserves

The lush sweetness of the figs shines through in this simple recipe. Any variety will work here. Dark-skinned figs produce an almost purple syrup; green Adriatic figs yield a pale syrup. For some spice, add a pinch of star anise. Quarter the figs and serve on crostini with goat cheese.

Watery Consistancy
November 2, 2016
I would not consider this a recipe for preserves. It was more like cooked figs! Drips off your toast. The taste was very nice though.
Pros: Easy
Cons: Appearance, Texture

Needs Pectin
August 30, 2015
Granted this is my first time ever making jam...however, I followed the recipe exactly without pectin and the formula came out watery. After sealing the jars, I had to go back and open them all and add pectin to the recipe and reseal them. Also the orange peel is actually a little overpowering and I wish I had held back more on the amount I put in. Will try this recipe again without the orange peel.
Pros: Healthy, Easy, Kid-Friendly, Will Make Again, Adaptable
Cons: Confusing
