5 pounds peeled figsPeel and quarter figs, add sugar and sliced lemon. Let stand two or three hours to draw juice, stir now and then to help dissolve sugar.
5 pounds sugar

When sugar has softened, start cooking. Let come to a rolling boil. Boil 25-30 minutes, stirring constantly so liquid doesn't stick to bottom of pot.
After foam disappears and juice has thickened a little, ladle into hot jars and seal.
