Strawberry Lavender Jam
Small Batch Jam Co
The San Francisco Bay Area is home to many strawberry farmers who start to peddle their delicious fresh picked berries come early May at all the local farmers markets and corners of main intersections.
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 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.
Although our recipe calls for longer cooking times since this is a pectin free recipe, we think you'll agree that the time was well spent with each delicious spoonful in this 12 oz jar. Enjoy!!
