  1. Place the figs and ginger in a large pot. Pour in the orange juice and mix. Mix the powdered pectin and sugar, and then add to the figs.
  1. Bring the mixture to a boil, stirring constantly. Once at a full boil, start timing and keep the mixture at a boil for a good 3 minutes, constantly stirring and crushing the fruit gently.
  1. Check to see if the mixture gels using the saucer test. If not, keep at a boil for another minute and then check again. Skim off any foam.
  1. Fill the jam in sterilized jars, leaving about 3 mm space at the top of the jar. Seal, and then turn upside down and leave for 5 minutes. Store jars in your pantry.
