Fig and Grape Preserves

Ingredients

·1 pound fresh ripe figs, stemmed
·1 pound green grapes, stemmed
·1/2 pound raisins
·1 vanilla bean or 1 tsp. vanilla extract
·1/2 pound brown sugar
·2 cups filtered water
·juice of half a lemon

Directions

Place all the ingredients in a stainless steel pan. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly, then reduce heat to a simmer and cook until thick, about 40 minutes. Add lemon juice. Ladle the hot fig-grape mixture into clean jars and chill uncovered overnight. The next day, cover each jar with plastic wrap. Keep in the refrigerator. Enjoy on toast or bagels!

It's fun and challenging to cook with what's available and the produce is so much fresher than anywhere else. Our family loves Ooooby!
