Out of the three recipes I made with fresh figs last week, this one is my favorite. This recipe only took about 10-15 minutes to make but is so very tasty. This will be one of the first recipes I turn to the next time I have access to fresh figs. They are quick preserves so you need to be ready to eat them rather quickly, but that won't be a problem. This are so good you'll wish you had of doubled the recipe.
Thick, sweet, chunky preserves are the best and you can feel good about this recipe because it uses honey and sugar, not just a ton of regular sugar. Very rustic feel to this jam because of the nice big pieces of fig. I love it, definitely a favorite.

- Cook over medium heat (add water if needed) and bring to a boil.
