    Perfect proportions thanks. I preserved about 5 litres (bit more than a gallon) today. I threw the lemon rind and a teaspoon of tartar into the pot, just to be sure (too many not-quite-set preserves in my past)

    Of course there are germs on the lid which need killing; you put your fingers all over the lids after boiling them in water.

    Jesus Christ saves from sin.
    Romans 3:23
    For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
    Hebrews 9:27
    And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:
    Isaiah 64:6
    But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.
    Revelation 21:8
    But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
    Romans 5:8
    But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
    John 3:16
    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
    John 14:6
    Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
    Romans 10:9-10.
    That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
    For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
    John 5:24
    Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.
    1John 5: 10-13
    He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son.
    And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.
    He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.
    These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.
    Ephesians 2:8-9
    For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
    Not of works, lest any man should boast.
    Romans 8:1
    There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
    1 Corinthians 15:3-4
    For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
    And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
    2 Corinthians 5:21
    For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

    This looks great, I live in Crete, Greece and figs here just drop on the ground. I must try this recipe but can you share how you eat them. Please.

  5. Dan Printz

    I'm new to canning… I've never seen your way of canning figs although I like it, a lot!!! My question is my canning book & National Center for Home Food Preservation says to water bath can figs. What's the difference? Dan

  6. Ben Sutherland

    Great recipe and well done video! Just finished up my first batch. They came out nicely.Thank you very much, Jamie.

  7. Patricia Sears

    Thank you. I’m canning figs now, but the way my mom did it is taking longer. Putting jars on a pan in the oven will make sterilizing jars easier than putting in a pot of boiling water. Thank you!

  8. Zane McElroy

    Our figs are nearly baseball sized and still pretty green when sweet and starting to bustin open. Our jam and preserves are ugly but good. Can't figure out what's going on with our tree. Weird species I guess.

  9. Shirley Hill

    Forever years ago I tried to make Fig Preserves to no avail. I saw your video and thought hummm, I think I am going to try it and … wow … the figs turned out awesome and I will be making them every year. Thank you for sharing.

  10. SAL

    I didn’t know about turning the jars over. I’m going to do that from now on. I just started making preserves this spring. I started in May with wild blackberries. Then I made peach, blueberry, more blackberry (cultivated variety). My husband says we have enough preserves now, but I’m going to pick up a gallon bag of figs today from a lady because I LOVE figs. Our little fig tree that we planted died. 😢 Thank you for the video. 💕

    Why do people act like this method isnt as good as the boiling in water? This seems like a better recipe. Never tried euther way but ready to make some

  12. Queen_Of_Rockers Rocks

    I love this but the National Caning says the upside down trick isn’t enough. Your supposed to can then in boiling water for 10 minutes?

  13. Debie Sims

    Sit, another excellent video. I was wondering if you could cook the figs in the crockpot about 4 hours on high? Or low?

  14. Sue Lynn Sandifer

    What kind of sugar did you use? It appeared cream colored and I wondered if it is raw sugar? Thanks

  15. Luke Jones

    If you didnt cook the figs, I think they would ferment in the sugar and water solution and produce alcohol which would also preserve them, I think, as long as you keep them in an air tight container.

  16. JaceyPenne

    My mom has been looking for this old fashioned way of fig preserves but every store only has the jam kind. She ate it this exact same way as a kid in Louisiana. I am going to make it this same way for her for the holidays thanks to you. Your video is much appreciated!!!!

  17. Chris Vann

    Thanks so much for sharing this recipe. I created some fig preserves a couple of years ago using another recipe from YouTube and they did not taste like the fig preserves I was accustomed to eating. I saw your recipe and decided to try it and this is just what I was looking for. Thanks again!

  18. Everything McKate

    This is a canning I can get with! Grandma us to can peaches. Gonna learn how to it. Thanks so much! Good luck with your yummy preserves.

  19. Jean A

    I like the fresh figs when they are really squishy. I pick them and put them in a plastic bag and by the time I am done, I have squashed ones on the bottom, as they are that soft. Are these okay to use for canning preserves? What would happen if I made preserves out of these? May I add lemon and cinnamon to these? If I can, how much? Thanks for great video!

  20. Kristina O'Quinn

    Thank you for the very clear, no-nonsense video! Thanks for the tip of putting them upside down for a bit.
