I used a pack of 5 ripe figs.
Peel the skin and quarter.
Place the figs from Step 2 into an enamel pot. Add the sugar and mix. Let sit for about 5 minutes, then turn on the heat.
While Step 3 is heating, remove any scum from the surface, and mash the figs with the back of a ladle as the liquid boils down. Add the lemon juice and continue heating until thickened.
Store in a sterilized jar.
