Fig Jam

Is “slow oven” a Texas thing? Is that like the Kessel run?

From a box sold in San Antonio, Texas.

Fig Jam (as written on the card)

10 cups figs (after grinding)
1 cups sugar
3 oranges (ground or sliced)
1 lemon pulp + rind
2 cups nuts + raisins if desired

Boil above until thick. Then put in real slow oven for about 2 hours. Stir once in a while.

    Slow ovens are not a Texas thing. It’s a holdover term from the days before ovens had thermostats. Slow oven=300-325ish. Moderate oven is 350. Quick or fast oven is 375ish on up, usually closer to 400. Etc .
