med104695_0609_strawberry_jam_vert

Ingredients:

1 lb. fresh strawberries
1/2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
2 Tbsp. honey
1 1/2 tsp gelatin powder unflavoured

Directions:

1. Cut the tops off of the strawberries  then slice the strawberries in half. Put the strawberries, lemon juice and honey in a small saucepan and place over medium-high heat.

2. Allow the mixture to boil lightly for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Once the strawberries are softened, start mashing the mixture with a potato masher or a whisk until it reaches your desired consistency (mash less for chunkier jam and mash more for a smoother jam)

3.Remove the pan from the heat, add the gelatin and stir until well combined.

4. Transfer the mixture to a jar and allow the cool for about 15-20 minutes. Place the lid on the jar and store in the refrigerator until ready to use.

Great on yonanas or mixed in with coconut milk. Experiment and find your favorite!

It will last about one week in the refrigerator.
