- 4 pounds peeled figs
- 1 lemon, sliced
- Layer sugar, figs and lemon slices in large pot and cook covered on very low
heat until sugar dissolves (about 1 hour). Uncover and cook about 45 minutes longer,
until figs are transparent.

until thicker. Put figs back into pot and let sit overnight.
- The following morning, heat figs to a boil and seal in jars.
