I recently saw containers of figs at the supermarket.
Last year when I ran into them at the market, it was the middle of September...the figs seem to be a bit early this year, so I bought a container at 398 yen (about US$3.98) for about a pound of figs and made a batch of fig jam.
After making the first batch, I remembered how great this recipe turned out and wanted to make more, so the next day, I went back to the market and bought 2 more containers for the same price.
Luckily I had enough bottles....I made a total of 10 from the 2 batches.
I hope my family and friends will enjoy them.
