Slow Cooker Fig Preserves

Fig Preserves are easy to make in the slow cooker, but could always be done on the stove top if you prefer. I cut my figs in half since they are so large, but using them whole would be fine too. Cook until you get the right syrupy consistency for your tastes.

  • 12 cups figs halved
  • 1/2 - 1 cup water
  • 4 cups sugar
  • 1 lemon sliced
  • 1 Tbsp cinnamon


  • Combine all ingredients in a 6 quart slow cooker. Start with less water and add more if needed during the cooking process to keep from sticking and burning.
  • Cook on high for 4 hours or until you reach the desired consistency. During the last half of cooking, partially remove the lid of slow cooker so that liquid can cook down and thicken.
  • Once desired consistency is reached, follow canning procedures to preserve: scoop preserves into sterilized, warm jars. Cover with lid and screw on ring until finger tight, leaving about 1/2" finger space at top. Boil in a "granny" bath for 10 minutes. Carefully remove from bath and allow to cool for at least 12 hours.


Makes 4 pint jars or 8 1/2 pint jars. One serving is a Tablespoon.
