Add the glucose, sugar, water, cinnamon, star anise, vanilla and pepper to a very large saucepan. Bring to the boil and cook until the temperature reaches 135°C
Add the figs and continue to cook rapidly. At The Langham, Andrew uses a refractometer to work out when the mixture is cooked – if you have one it should read 62 Brix, but otherwise cook the mixture until a temperature probe reaches 103°C (this shouldn’t take longer than 10 minutes)
  • 2kg figs, ideally Solliès figs, sliced
Stir in the pectin, remove from the heat and add the citric acid. Allow to cool slightly, then transfer the mixture to sterilised jars (you can remove the cinnamon, star anise and vanilla pod at this point if desired)
  • 13g of pectin
  • 40g of citric acid
To give the jam an indefinite shelf life, steam or boil the jars for 30 minutes at 90°C. Once the jars are opened, store in the fridge
