Getting a good set for strawberry jam can be hard without extra pectin, lots of sugar, or a long cooking time. Enter the cranberry. Lots of natural pectin, beautiful ruby red color, and a little tartness make this the perfect strawberry jam.
This balsamic strawberry jam is lovely and complex, and the perfect way to preserve summer's quintessential fruit. It's wonderful stirred into your favorite yogurt or spooned over the top of vanilla ice cream!
An experimental flavor combination that turned out to be gangbusters! Next time you make strawberry jam, consider this recipe. Fresh mango, sweet strawberries, sprig of mint, and dark rum make this jam unforgettable.
Made this jam with out of season fruit from the grocery store when I was out of town, but it was so delicious that I'm definitely making it again this summer with really good sweet strawberries and peaches from our trees.
