Preparation -- 15 minutes

RINSE the figs, remove the stems and divide them into smaller pieces. The larger the pieces will be, the coarser the jam will be.

SQUEEZE the juice from the lemons and set aside. Make sure your jam jars are sterile. The easiest way is to cook them in boiling water for a few minutes. Don't forget to cook the lids as well.

The exact time depends on the type of pan you're using, the thicker the bottom will be the longer it takes. COOK the jam until it has the desired thickness.

DIVIDE the jam, as hot as possible, over the jars. Put the lid on and set them upside down to let them cool off. Enjoy!
