Ingredients
  • cups diced fresh pineapple
  • cups chopped dried figs chopped and stem removed (I used Calimyrna figs, but any type of dried figs can be used)
  • ¼ cup water
  • ¼ cup fresh lemon juice
  • 5 cups sugar measured into separate bowl
  • ½ teaspoon butter will decrease the foam that rises to the top during the brief cook on the stovetop
  • 1 pouch liquid pectin I use CERTO
Instructions
  1. Wash jars, lids and bands in hot, soapy water; rinse with warm water and dry.
  2. Measure exactly 1½ cups diced pineapple and 1½ cups chopped figs. Stir together in a large dutch oven or sauce pan. Add water and lemon juice and stir to combine.
  3. Stir sugar into fruit mixture. Add butter to reduce foaming. Bring mixture to full rolling boil (a boil that doesn't stop bubbling when stirred) on high heat, stirring constantly. Stir in liquid pectin. Return to full rolling boil and boil exactly 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Skim off any foam with metal spoon.
  4. Ladle into prepared jars, filling to within ½ inch of tops. Wipe jar rims and threads. Cover with lids and bands. Allow to sit at room temperature for 24 hours then transfer to freezer. Will keep for up to 6 months in the freezer.
