Mission Fig Conserve taste great. From dinner recipes, budget menus and healthy diet selections, you’ll easily find any recipe you need.



  1. Combine figs with remaining ingredients except hot sauce in a 2-quart pot. Bring to a simmer, and cook until thick, about 15-20 minutes, on medium heat. Stir frequently to be sure the mixture doesn’t stick. The finished product will be thickly syrupy. Test a bit by letting it cool on a spoon. It shouldn’t be runny.
  2. Taste the mixture, and if it needs a bit more lemon juice or salt, add it in, then add the dash of Sriracha sauce at the end. I use my homemade, which is very hot from my home-grown peppers, but commercial should be fine too. This is a perfect condiment to can and give as a gift. I made four small one-cup jars, which I processed in a water bath for 20 minutes, and still had a bit more to nibble on. If you don’t can the conserve, store it in the refrigerator. It should keep for about a month; there’s not as much sugar in it as a jam, so it won’t last forever.
