Strawberry Fig Preserves


3 to 4 cups figs
3 cups sugar
2 (3 oz.) pkg strawberry jello


Wash figs and cut off stems. Place in heavy cooking pot and mash with potato masher. Add sugar and jello; bring to boil and cook for 10 minutes on medium to high heat; stir constantly to keep from sticking.

Pour into warm sterilized half-pint jars, top with lids, and place in hot water bath for 10 minutes. Remove with thongs and cool; store in cool dry place.
