This was the basis for my company, napa farmhouse 1885. We sold many types of jam, marmalade, chutney & preserves all made from the fruit trees on our property. We later added dog treats, granola, spice blends and a bath & body care line but that is another story. Late last year I put the company on "pause" mode so I could spend time dealing with a family illness. Now, I am not sure I will reopen the business. Pause mode is kinda nice. :)

Fig & Orange Grand Marnier Jam
Ladle hot jam into hot jars leaving 1/4 inch headspace. Wipe rim. Center lid on jar. Apply band until fit is fingertip tight. Process in a boiling water canner for 10 minutes, adjusting for altitude. Remove jars and cool. Check lids for seal after 24 hours. Lid should not flex up and down when center is pressed.
(Note, if you are new to canning/preserving, check out the resource guide at Ball)
