Tips

Store in jam jars or plastic container, keep in frigerator or freezer.
Dose 1 teaspoon to 2 tablespoons per day, spread on toast or put in oatmeal or in a smoothie. Increase or decrease dosage as needed or as tolerance dictates. I like this very much on my toast and in my fruit smoothie.


Directions

Measure out fruit and cut stems off figs & cut figs in half. Place water, lemon juice and fruit in a pot, bring to a boil & then simmer for 15 minutes. Turn off heat & let sit for 15 minutes. Put batch through a food processor or meat grinder or blender with the prune juice till smooth. The consistency is similar to apple butter.
