Adapted from this recipe
2 1/4 cups of sugar
Combine the sugar and the water in a large pot and heat until the sugar is dissolved.
Meanwhile, quarter the figs. Add the figs and the rest of the ingredients into the pot with the sugar water, and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, and simmer for 1 hour, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and allow the jam to cool. Spread on everything you can find, or eat directly with a spoon.
