this water to make a thin syrup. Boil figs 5 minutes in syrup. If a sweeter product
is desired, make a heavy syrup with water and sugar and combine equal parts of heavy
syrup with corn syrup.
Add a few slices of lemon to syrup and boil figs for 5 minutes.
Pack into jars to within 1/2 inch of top with precooking syrup.
Put on cap, screw
