Autumn Fig Jam

4.5 lbs/2 Kg figs, trimmed, partially peeled, and cut into eighths
1.5 lbs/750g sugar
1/2 c/125 ml bottled water
2 lemons, ends trimmed, cut lengthwise in quarters, then very thin triangles, seeds removed.

Place the figs, sugar, water and lemons in a large heavy bottomed saucepan, stir until well combined, boil over medium heat. After reaching a boil, cook until juices thicken slightly (about 25 minutes). Mixture will be thin, but will thicken as it cools. Remove from heat and seal jar as per manufacturer's instructions.

Makes about 8 pints/4 liters
