Roasted Fig Preserve

  • 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.

Wash and halve the figs.  Then lay them in the baking dish on top of 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.
