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.

your jam looks professional. i love the labels!

Rowena said...

Sounds great, and I love how you made your own labels!!!!

Thanks Genki and Rowena, the hardest part of making the labels was choosing from the gazillions of blank labels that they sell at the store!

Take care you two.

I have to echo the loving the labels part--adds such a nice touch. Now I want more figs to make jam--it looks wonderful!
