Canning Figs Without Sugar


With the high rate of diabetes in the Cajun population, this is the perfect recipe to keep enjoying your figs!


  • tree-ripened figs
  • 1 tbsp canned lemon per quart


Step 1

Use tree ripened figs. Sort and wash carefully.

DO NOT use soda for cleaning. It can make figs unsafe when canned plain in a boiling water bath canner.

Step 2

Bring figs to a boil in hot water, then let stand 3 to 4 minutes and drain. This removes the "milk" from the skins and cleans them.

Step 3

Pack in hot jars.

Step 4

Add 1 tablespoon canned lemon juice per quart and cover with boiling water.

Step 5

Seal and process in boiling water bath canner. Boil pint jars for 45 minutes and Quart jars for 50 minutes.
