How to make Fig Preserves by Heghineh Wasn’t planning on making a tutorial on fig preserves. Then I thought to ask my Facebook and Instagram followers, if anyone would be interested in learning how to make it. Sometimes I want to see if people are willing to make their own homemade sweets, before I do a tutorial. Because, nowadays many go with store bought and don’t really care making things that might be slightly time taking. Surprisingly came to realize, that many were interested, so here we go: fig preserves on our sweets menu.
