Super Strawberry Fig Jam (Low-Sugar)

Came up with this low sugar recipe after being overwhelmed by light & heavy syrups while canning whole figs. Lots of figs around here now - free for the picking as not too many folks eat them anymore (Whaaaat?). It has a bright fresh flavor - when DH taste tested he ate all the extra from the first batch (about a 1/2 cup overage). Ordinarily he is a taste & go kind of guy so I knew it was good. I use the extra pectin as I like a firmer set. Leave out the extra pectin if you want a softer set (low sugar pectin seems to set softer for me). I added the extra lemon juice (bottled for the standardized pH) for safety's sake. No point in making the stuff just to get knocked off by it. The lemon definitely enhances.
