Directions:
Directions:
Wash figs and remove stems. Use 1 pint (2 cups) sugar to 1 quart figs. I use a quart jar to measure: 2 quarts figs to 1 quart sugar. Cover figs with sugar and let stand until sugar is melted. Cook on low heat until sugar is liquified. Then cook on medium heat until figs swivel and juice is syrupy. Pack in hot sterilized jars. Tighten lids and put in hot water bath that covers lids by at least 1 inch. Bring to a full boil for 10 minutes. Remove jars from bath and let cool.
