Figs seem to be one of those fruits that people love or they don’t like at all. At the house where I grew up, there was a huge fig tree in the back yard that was quite prolific and produced almost every year. During the summer we had an abundance of fresh figs which a few members of the family enjoyed right off the tree and the other could leave them be. My mother and I were a couple of the ones that loved figs and could eat them by the bowl full. However, we had more figs than we could eat so in order to not waste a single fig, my mother made these Strawberry Fig Preserves with JELL-O. Everyone loved these preserves! They are a great compromise for those who love figs and those who don’t.
