saving a little summertime

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.
