Strawberry Fig Preserves
I remember the first time I ate strawberry fig preserves. It was in the 90’s when I worked at a women’s jail. One of the older ladies that worked there always made preserves and different types of jams and brought them in for the deputies to enjoy. Her strawberry and fig preserves was the best concoction of them all.
Back then, I wasn’t much of a cook, so I didn’t even consider asking her for the recipe. These days, I’m a jam-making-machine, at least that’s what a friend recently called me. This is my attempt at recreating that wonderful preserves. I feel bad that I don’t even remember her name, but I’d like to think that she’d be proud of my efforts!
