Roasted Fig Preserve Recipe:
- 1 Lemon
- 2 LBS Ripe Figs
- 3/4 Cup of Sugar
Preheat the oven to 300 F. Thinly slice the lemon into rounds. Line the bottom of a baking dish with the lemon slices.
Sprinkle the sugar over the top of the figs. Now pour 1 Cup of water over the top of the figs. Cover the pan with tin foil and roast in the 300F oven for 2 hours. After 2 hours remove the tin foil and increase the temperature of the oven to 400F. Continue roasting the figs for another 1 and 1/2 hours.
Then spoon the mixture into 1/2 pint or jelly jars. You can keep this in the fridge for up to a month or you can drop the jars in a hot water bath. Roughly 5 minutes for 1/2 pints. Although it is still recommended to keep this preserve in the refrigerator because it is not completely saturated with sugar.
