I am blessed with some great friends who like to give me their produce. One of them in particular has very productive fig trees that had a second crop this year, and so a second batch of figs for me to put up!
Figs are generally very sweet, so I don’t put much sweetener in them. I also don’t bother with pectin since the fruit has enough substance to make it thick. Of course, you could add pectin if you wish.
