I just bought 2 lbs of fresh purple figs, I wondered if anyone has a great recipe for poaching figs in a sugar syrup. I want to put them in my Weck canning jars but don't know how to can. Will they last in my refrigerator until I am ready to use or do you think it's best to try my hand at canning. would adding some sort of alcohol help to preserve them, I think it would only make 2 jars of figs. Any advice?
