The night before preparing the jam we clean the figs and cut them into quarters, putting them in a pot along with the brown sugar. We stir to mix everything well and let it marinate for twelve hours in a cool place.
The next day we put the pot on the fire and add the lemon juice. Cook for twenty minutes, sprinkle the pectin with a strainer if we want to use it, and continue cooking for another thirty minutes. We stir from time to time so that the fruit does not stick to the bottom of the pot.
We pour hot into jars that we have boiled or washed in the dishwasher in a very hot water program, close tightly and let them cool upside down. Store in the refrigerator and leave for about two months before using them, if later we are not going to consume them very quickly, sterilize them for thirty minutes in a pot of boiling water.5 4 3 2 1 Thank you! 13 votes
