This is one of the simplest recipes for fig preserves. We did at one time sugar and let set overnight only to get busy the next day and when we got to them they had fermented.

Its basically the same recipe , In my youth I stirred a dish pan of figs for my grandmother quite often . Her recipie was simple equal amounts of sugar and figs . simmer until syrup is thick . Sometimes we would add the sugar as we started cooking and sometimes we would sugar them and put in fridge over night then cook them off the next day.
