Crock-Pot Fig Preserves
We love using our slow cookers to make up batches of jams, jellies and preserves! It lets you do some home canning without watching the pot constantly and heating up your kitchen.
So, when Crock-Pot Ladies reader Sheryl Benefield sent us over this recipe we were so excited to try it out for ourselves.
Figs are a treat for sure and are in season late June to July in most areas of the US and are so tasty. This slow cooked preserve has just a few simple ingredients and comes together quite easily.
You can opt to can this recipe in jars using the water bath method for about 15 minutes (adjusting as needed depending on your altitude) or you can simply store this yummy treat in your refrigerator for up to 3 months.
Give it a try when figs are in season!
