Heavenly Fig Jam

…at least that is what the book is calling it. 🙂

It tastes good, just not sure if it’ll jell up as much as it should. I couldn’t tell if I was supposed to add the water that the dried figs soaked in into the puree. The directions weren’t that clear. I just pureed the figs without the water…then I started to second guess myself and threw in some extra orange juice. Big sigh.

Anyhoo…here’s what is in the jam (7 1/2 pints made up):

Dried Figs, 18 oz
water, 3-1/2 cups
orange juice, 1/3 cup
lemon juice, 1 TBSP
sugar, 3-1/2 cups
pectin, 1 box
orange liqueur, 1/3 cup
