Cinnamon Fig Jam

My neighbor has this glorious fig tree. It produces more figs than three households can handle. Usually, my husband and kids get ahold of these wonderful fruits before I can do anything with them. But, this week, my man is out of town, and that means I can go to town and work some magic […]
