Dried Figs, 18 oz 

water, 3-1/2 cups 

orange juice, 1/3 cup

lemon juice, 1 TBSP 

sugar, 3-1/2 cups

Let cool slightly. Transfer figs and water to a food processor fitted with a metal blade and purée. Measure 3 cups.

Return pureed figs to saucepan and add orange juice and lemon juice. Bring to a boil over high heat, stirring frequently. Add sugar and pectin (mixed in with sugar) all at once and return to a full rolling boil, stirring constantly. Boil hard, stirring constantly, for 1 minute. Immediately stir in orange-flavored liqueur, if using. Remove from heat and skim off foam.
