Farm Sweet Farm-- Fruit n More

Click on photo to enlarge

We have been living at our  "old- Farm House"
for a little over a year now.. Many changes have
been made..  Still lots of work to do. I found this
Farm Sweet Farm container at Hobby Lobby. My
Pioneer Woman fruit jars, fit in it perfectly..[Don't
you love when that happens?] Found the  galvanized
tray at hobby lobby too. [love that store]. It says,
"Thankful, Grateful, and Truly Blessed."  And it
is so true.

Our fruit trees have been giving us lots of fruit.. Figs
and Pears are coming in..
So I decided to make  some  Fig/Strawberry Preserves.


Figs and Strawberries are cut up , ready to began.I am sharing my  recipe.. It is a Paula Deen recipe..So easy and Delicious. Note , you can make just figs,
just strawberry or combine them..

Fig/Stawberry Preserves

10 cups of  combination of figs and Strawberrieswashed, stems removed and cut in half
3 1/3 cups sugar
1 cup water
2-3 teaspoon lemon juice

Combine ingrediants,  Stir and let sit for 30 minutes, until
sugar dissolves. Then put on  medium heat and cook for
30 minutes. Place in hot jars/lids.

Delicious.....
All you need is  some hot buttered biscuits. yummy.

  5. Judy, Figs??? You ARE blessed. Enjoy the fruits of your labor! (funny, I had generic fig-newtons yesterday. Na, really bad!) There were 3 strawberries in the front patch, but the squirrel? ate them! Your home, after just a year, is remarkable. xxoo Deedy

    1. Ha... Deedy.. we have the squirrels eating everything problem too.. We have a big long row of hazel nut trees.. They are loaded down each year.. But........... we NEVER get more than a taste of them.. the squirrels get them, before they ripen . Same thing, with the pecan tree.
      I really like the combination strawberry/fig preserves.. I have made 2 batches this year.. Wish you were here, would have you picking figs. smile
