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! :)

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Wonderfully tart, this jam is simply scrumptious atop warm biscuits! Mmmm....


1 1/2 c
crushed strawberries & blackberries
3 Tbsp
lime juice
2 Tbsp
lavender leaves, fresh, chopped
30 drops of stevia
few grindings of fresh sea salt
1 1/2 Tbsp
low sugar/no sugar fruit pectin

Directions Step-By-Step

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. :)

I've never made jam, and I've definitely never used lavender leaves in my cooking. Do I use the leaves of any type of lavender plant? And it's the leaves, correct, not the fragrant flowers?

Bela, I use Stevia in packets. How many packets would I use instead of liquid? I do not use the grocery store stevia, but real organic that I get from an herb shop.

Many congratulations - I bet you could substitute agave syrup for the stevia - just adjust for sweetness. It is so easy to make little pots of jam with the new low-sugar pectin recipes. A friend gave us some extra green plums he had - mixed with some other plums it made some super plum jam. Frozen peaches, defrosted and pureed, and mixed with some fresh peaches also made 2 plastic jars of jam. Am pinching this recipe.

Well, so how much SUGAR could we use as I do not use other sweeteners?Agave syrup is not what its made out to be and stevia leaves an aftertaste to me, and artificial sweeteners are not an option!

Domino makes a blend which is half the regular sugar content. It is just now available in my area. I have never seen liquid stevia so do not know its equivalent to sugar.

Is it 1 1/2 cups each strawberries and blackberries? Has any one figured out how much sugar?
