Strawberry Lavender Jam
Our delicious strawberry lavender jam starts with only fresh picked strawberries that were hand selected and cleaned along with carefully selected and locally grown lavender that is cleaned and let out to sundry. Our recipe uses only fresh strawberries, fresh dried lavender, pure cane sugar, some citrus pectin to aid in the gelling and a generous splash of freshly squeezed lemon juice for a little zing to the flavor in this magical and flowery combination that lends itself to be perfectly paired with a nice cup of tea.
For these images, we made a batch of jam filled shortbread cookies that made the perfect snack with a cup of black Ceylon tea. The lavender's flowery note can be perceived throughout the jam, but especially when coming across the dried buds in the jam itself.
