Strawberry Basil Jam


Pairing fruits and herbs introduces a fantastic range of flavor in a dish, and strawberry and basil are two of summer's finest. Stir this jam into yogurt or oatmeal, use on toasts, or eat with your favorite pastry.


| Yield: 2 Cups | Time: 20-25 minutes | 




1. Place strawberries, sugar, salt, and lemon juice 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, then remove from heat. Pour into a sterilized jar, and store in fridge for up to 6 months.
