Rhubarb and Fig Jam

The saga of the never ending figs continues......I had another big batch to use and rather than make a cake that would disappear in a day I made jam that would disappear in a day! I realized how much I love to cook as I stirred the moltenous pot (see injury picture below)of fig and rhubarb until it was just a goey sticky lava. I then stretched my design skills and made pretty kraft paper labels to go on top of the jars.

I made 2 big jars of jam - one for us and one for my boss who has been supplying me with the figs.

There was something so satisfying as stacking up all my labeled jars and looking at them.

But it wasn't all glitz and glam. A blob of jam lept out of the pot and landed on my skin leaving me with a nasty jam burn that coincidentally looks like an exclamation mark!

My recipe was based off this website and I used this pectin (which is sold at my whole foods). I have another batch of figs and trying to decide what to do with those!
