Fig Jam

Last week at the farmers market they had figs and because Nathan loves figs we bought about 3 pounds. I found a recipe online that I modified to make Cinnamon Fig Jam.

Nathan bought me these cute little jars from the tractor supply store. Jam just looks better in tiny jars.
1 1/2 cup of sugar
1 cup water
2 1/2 - 3 pounds figs
1 cinnamon stick

Remove stems from figs and cut in quarters. Throw figs and all other ingredients into a pot and bring to a simmer. Cook uncovered for about an hour until mixture is thick. Make sure you give it a stir often so it doesn't burn.
Remove from heat and spoon into your prepared jars. Wipe rims and place lids and bands on jars. Process for 10 minutes in boiling water.

So far this is the best jam I've made!
