The smallest batch ever

My mom gave me some figs last weekend and I got a few more from a friend this week. Altogether it was a pound which was too much for us to eat fresh and seemingly too little to can. Or was it?

I made a 1/3 batch of Chunky Fig Jam from Marisa McClellan's cookbook, Food in Jars: Preserving in Small Batches Year-Round.

It's almost 2 cups of sweet & seedy jam and it's going to set up pretty firm because 1/3 of a pouch of liquid pectin is a little tricky to measure out. I'm sure I put in too much. Maybe I'll do what my sister suggested and make fig newtons or some other type of filled cookie with it.
