FRIED GREEN FIGS (or the Tweet that turned into Figs)

I was browsing over Twitter and saw this tweet:

I love that his first line is "junebug on a fig tree". great story except the bug part. I am a big fan of you and BrokeAssBride!!! The fruit paste looks yummy too.

Any chance you'd be willing to share your recipe for Fig & Fennel Jam?

There are a couple of prolific green fig trees in the yard of our Los Angeles home and so far, this season, I've made several varieties of fig jam:

White Fig
White Fig and Guava
White Fig and Pineapple
White Fig and Rhubarb
White Fig and Tangerine
White Fig and Key Lime
White Fig and Apricot
White Fig, Black & Blueberry
White Fig, Raspberry & Strawberry
White Fig, Cranberry, Orange & Cardamom

So, there's a LOT of jam 'round these parts. If you'd be willing to share the recipe or swap jars, I'd be one happy jam-making camper. Thanks!
