Bela's notes for this recipe:
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! :)

Wonderfully tart, this jam is simply scrumptious atop warm biscuits! Mmmm....

Directions

1
Start by washing and finely chopping the fruit. Once chopped, mash with a fork or a potato masher.
2
Add the lime juice, lavender, stevia and sea salt. Stir to thoroughly combine.
3
Add the pectin and stir for 3 minutes, making sure the pectin is fully dissolved.
4
Ladle the jam into jars. I used 5 4-oz jelly jars and had a few Tbsp leftover.
5
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?
