Strawberry Blackberry Jam with Lavender
I gathered some blackberries from my property, in the hopes of making some jam... but I didn't have enough. I decided to use up the strawberries from my recent trip to the farmer's market plus the lavender I grow, as well. So delicious! :)
each crushed strawberries & blackberries
lavender leaves, fresh, chopped
few grindings of fresh sea salt
low sugar/no sugar fruit pectin
Start by washing and finely chopping the fruit. Once chopped, mash with a fork or a potato masher.
Add the lime juice, lavender, stevia and sea salt. Stir to thoroughly combine.
Add the pectin and stir for 3 minutes, making sure the pectin is fully dissolved.
Ladle the jam into jars. I used 5 4-oz jelly jars and had a few Tbsp leftover.
Let jars sit out for 24 hours at room temperature before storing. These can be stored in the freezer for up to 1 year, or for 3 weeks in the refrigerator. Enjoy. :)
