Equipment

  • heavy bottom pot
  • wooden spoon
  • mason jars

Ingredients

  • 2 pound Strawberries, washed and chopped
  • 1 Tsp. Lavender, dried
  • 1 Lemon
  • 1 Cup Sugar
  • 1 1/2 Tsp. Cinnamon, ground
  • 2 Cup Water

Instructions

  • Cut tops off of strawberries and discard. Throw chopped strawberries into heavy bottom pot and add sugar. Mash the strawberry mixture with a potato masher and then add the water, cinnamon, and juice of one lemon.
  • Place the mixture over medium heat and bring to a simmer until thickened. I chose to not use any kind of thickener in my jam but you could of course incorporate that step now. I would add about a teaspoon of either cornstarch, agar agar or pectin. Make sure to bring the jam back to a boil if you choose to add a thickener. Once your jam is boiled down to a good consistency, remove from heat and pour the jam into the mason jars. Once cooled, place in your fridge to enjoy immediately or at a later date! Jam should keep for several months.
