3 pounds fresh figs, washed and stems removed
2 C sugar
juice and zest of 1 lemon
Simmer all for 1 hour, stirring occasionally. Once it starts getting very thick, be sure to stir constantly. Cook until it gels well (the surface will wrinkle a little when pushed with a finger).
Fill hot jars with hot jam and cover with hot lids, leaving 1/2" head space. Let seal or process if needed.
