Strawberry Basil Jam
| Yield: 2 Cups | Time: 20-25 minutes |
1. Place strawberries, sugar, salt, lemon juice, lemon zest and orange zest into a medium pot. Toss to coat strawberries, then turn heat to medium.
2. Stir frequently to prevent scorching, and allow the strawberries to cook down and thicken, about 15 – 20 minutes.
3. As the jam reaches desired thickness, add chopped basil. Cook for a few more minutes, then remove from heat. Spread onto a silplat to cool. Store in fridge for about one week.
