Another Jam

The figs are still producing so I haven't had time to do anything but make jam to use them up. 
Yesterday evening I made some "orange marmalade" fig jam. For that I used orange jello and some added real orange flavoring.  Oddly I only got four jars out of that batch. 
Tonight I got more daring. I used lemon jello, the juice of two limes, some lemon flavoring and some powered ginger.  So these will be lemon ginger fig jam.  This made six jars and there was some left over that I put in a container to use right away.

And  finally:
All sealed up- Lemon Ginger Fig Jam  
(and yes it is tasty! I had to "clean" the pan!)

We have two fig trees but never produce enough for jam. Yours sounds just scrumptious. Come winter it bring summer back to the breakfast table.

I've canned tomato's and Georgia Peach's. I love canning when I lived on the farm. Just do a little canning now.
