You will need about 4, 1/2 pint jars for this recipe. Make sure they are cleaned and sterilized before you get started.

Add the figs, and lemon juice, and sugar in a heavy saucepan and set the heat to medium-low. Bring the mixture to a boil. Once it boils, set the heat to low and simmer it for twenty minutes. Mixture should continue to bubble. If it isn’t raise the heat slightly until it does.
