Fig preserves are just figs cooked down with sugar and canned. It's an easy process with amazing results. For half my batch, I added two fresh jalapenos to the food processor. It's so good and I have Christmas and teacher gifts already in my pantry!
Here's my garden...I live in South Texas, so it's hot. I've been asked how my garden grows so well...grow native. Most of my plants are Texas natives and drought resistant.
And if you have a garden, plant herbs!!!
My mint is flowering
Chives, Lavender, Thyme, Parsley
