Why do I like it?
I was looking for a recipe to make a jam or preserve with a huge bag of figs from my friend's tree. I wanted a recipe that didn't use any pectin or refined sugar. This recipe is very easy with only a few ingredients. You do have to stay close by to stir and break up the figs with a potato masher, but still it is a very easy technique.
Any recipe notes or tweaks?
The first time I made this I didn't change anything. The honey and lemon flavors dominated the fig. The next time, I increased the amount of figs by 50% so I used 3 pounds of figs instead of 2 as the recipe states. I prefer it with the larger amount of figs and will make it this way in the future.
