Fig & Ginger Jam

I made a fig jam the other week using figs that our neighbour gave us and it got eaten straight away!! Our figs are just about ready we managed to pick enough to make some more jam, but this time I thought I would try something different and make it with Honey to give a slightly different sweetness and Ginger, it worked a treat :-)!!….

Let this simmer on a medium heat for about 20 minutes until all of the figs are soft and the jam is thickened.

With a hand blender blitz this up, I like to leave a few chunks but it’s up to you how smooth you want it.

Now sterilise the jars and add the hot jam into hot jars.
