Hi from Georgia, great combination of fruits. Didn’t try ginger but sounds good. Certain jams like blackberry and the fig combinations beg for a little cayenne pepper to give it memory. Strawberry kiwi was my favorite this year. Mango- apple a close second. Just finished muscadine sauce and jelly and both got local approval. Thanks. John

I love this jam! I made this jam and I am amazed at the flavor! I have had something similar and found that the ginger can be a little strong... so I went on the lighter side of 1 Tbsp. I used just a pinch under. Perfect! I will make this again... and again! Love that it is freezer jam. So easy!
