Anything is good, in moderation. I cook because I love to and because I can share with those around me. I crochet for the same reason.

Do what you want to do, enjoy what you do and use it to touch those around you.

Honeyed Fig Jam with Walnuts

Recently, a friend called to ask if I would like to go pick figs.  Always one for new things, I said 'Sure, Why Not?"  Next up, what to do with figs.  I never cooked with figs, so I tried several options.  First, I made a plain fig jam - Fruit, Pectin, Sugar - cook, stir, jar, boil, done.  It was good, kind of like Strawberry.  Next up, I made this.  Honeyed figs are good, add some finely chopped walnuts, voila, tasty jam.

You'll Need:

5 1/2 Cups Figs - I peeled and removed most pith, but that was personal preference
3 Cups Honey
3 Tbl Lime Juice
1 Pouch Liquid Pectin
1.5 Cups Finely Chopped Walnuts

In a large saucepan, combine figs, honey and lemon juice. 

Bring to a rolling boil.  Add pectin and boil one minute, stirring constantly.  Remove from heat, Stir in walnuts, cool for 10 minutes.  Stir to combine, ladle into jars.

Process in a boiling water canner for 10 minutes (adjusting as necessary for altitude).
