*****If you make your own fig preserves, great for you. If not, the store bought kind, works well. Country Meat Block, has a lady, who sells homemade fig preserves there. When my dad was alive, I would buy 2 cases from her for him. He simply adored fig preserves. I like to make these in small loaf pans. Great to pull out when you have unexpected guests, for weekends or holidays, and serve for breakfast or in afternoon with a nice cup of coffee or hot tea.
