I love this recipe and make it for my son each year! It is not a canning safe recipe though and with the jello it needs to be frozen to store.

I have always put my Fig Preserves in a cool place in my basement and have never had a problem. They are gone from the shelf so fast I have never worried. Thank you for your advice. I will surely look into freezing them too.

I apologize!! I just found the recipe on http://nchfp.uga.edu/how/can_07/strawberry_fig_preserves.html Which is one of the most trusted safe canning sites. They talk about water bathing it which means its shelf stable.

Thank you for mentioning the hot water bath too. I did a batch with Peach Jello this evening and it came out delicious. Its the greatest recipe. Easy and everyone loves it no matter which flavor of jello you add. Great Christmas presents too.
