Amazing No Fail Strawberry Fig Jam plus Tasty Tuesdays

The first week of November marks National Fig Week so I thought it was about time to update and share my Great Grandmother’s No Fail Strawberry Fig Jam.

Amazing No Fail Strawberry Fig Jam: easy jam recipe made with fresh figs and strawberry gelatin.

How can I claim this jam is no fail? There is a secret ingredient… gelatin!

I heard my fellow traditional jam and jelly makers gasp in horror. Yes, it is a “cheater jam”. But, it is quite delicious and no one has to know you didn’t fuss and bother to get the right combination of ingredients and temperature to find the perfect jelling point.
