Figs jams can be made with virtually any Kool Aid flavors – the original six flavors were Strawberry, Raspberry, Orange, Lemon-Lime, Grape, and Cherry, Although not all are a perfect choice, many are suitable to flavor figs including Black Cherry,
To reduce the amount of sugar and sweetness, Kool-Aid flavors can be used instead of Jello.
- 4 cups fresh figs ground
- 3 cups sugar
- 1 large box strawberry jello
Clean figs; cut stems off and grind in meat grinder or food processor.
Put figs in large, heavy-duty pot. Pour the sugar over the figs, then the jello. Let the mixture soak for 30 to 45 minutes.
Cook over medium heat until mixture comes to a boil. Lower heat and cook on low for 30 minutes after the mixture comes to a boil. The mixture is not real thick.
Dip the canning jars and lids in hot water to sterilize.
Pour figs into the canning jars that have been placed in hot water so the jars will not break. Seal, cool and store.
