"Many times people mistake my fig preserves for strawberry or blackberry jam. It is so easy to do, and my kids love the twist on the sometimes-boring fig preserves." — mammak

fresh figs, stemmed and quartered
lemon, thinly sliced and seeds removed
2 (3 ounce) packages
strawberry-flavored Jell-O® mix
1-pint canning jars with lids and rings, or as needed
This is the best fig preserves I have every made. The preserves have the flavor of the Jell-o, I made strawberry, blackberry, and raspberry. I only used 2 cups of sugar and be sure not to use sugar free Jell-O.
