My parents have a fig tree in the garden of their house in Los Angeles. They arrived for a weekend visit and brought me 5 or 6 pounds of figs.
What's a girl to do but make fig jam?
This year I had help.
Just in case 5 or 6 pounds of figs are also dropped in your lap, here's a recipe. I've used this recipe for the past 5 years -- easy as pie and the taste is rather amazing.
