Canning Fig Preserves tonight..10 pints

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Sea Coast Advantage 93383

 

At this moment, my husband is in the neighbors yard, (at Neighbor's request) picking figs so that we can do some fig preserve canning tonight.

Wow...am I excited!

Worked all day. Two listing appointments and now home to can.  Do you realize the work that goes into the canning process?

Actually, I love it and we do enjoy doing this together.

 

Wish I could share them with you.

Ginger  of Southport

Ginger,  I've been there and done that but not this year with veggies from the garden. We did not plant anything this year.  I have fruit trees but no time to do anything with them this year.  I had some clients that gave me fig preserves.  That was the first time I had tried them, they were wonderful.  I do have some young fig trees, it will be a few years before they produce much.  Enjoy your canning time.

Judi.

I do enjoy the canning.  Saving something that would otherwise be wasted if you did not can or freeze..

 

Part of my handed down heritage from my parents..

Yummy!!  I haven't had fig preserves in years.  I was showing homes the other day and a tree in the yard next door was filled with figs.

I also love it when I can visit the Chicago farmers markets, get the best freshest produce and preserve it. Nothing better in the Winter! One day I will grow my own food again and can that!

These look delicious.  Makes me wish I had a larger backyard so I could grow a lot of fruit trees.
