I love to cook. I love cooking for other people to enjoy. I love trying new things. So this summer I tried my hand at making fig preserves. Something that combines all of these loves.
A neighbor had more figs than she knew what to do with and I was willing to go and spend sometime in the Texas heat to pick them. I found a recipe for Drunken Fig Jam and I thought it sounded like an excellent idea. The first batch is finished and I have to say tastes pretty good. I’ll give myself a little pat on the back. And there are jars to share which is better than any pat on the back.
