Sometimes you come across a recipe so simple, yet so intriguing. A recipe that makes your mouth water as you’re reading, and the realization that you must make it, the sooner the better, becomes clear. This time it was Strawberry Balsamic Jam and it comes from a beautiful food blog called The Forest Feast, a blog that features absolutely stunning photography and simple, but delightful recipes. Check it out!
Three simple ingredients come together deliciously. And the aroma as the jam is simmering is so very intoxicating. Really. And that’s a term I don’t use often. Just from the smell I knew this was something to be excited about. And to tell the world! Well, the world of those who read my blog.
Slightly sweet, but not as sweet as a typical jam. It’s more savory and pairs well with cheese, crackers or toasted baguette, and of course, wine (insert contented sigh here).
Strawberry Balsamic Jam
1 pound organic strawberries, hulled and sliced
½ cup brown sugar (I used dark Muscovado, but any good quality brown sugar will do)
¼ cup Balsamic vinegar
Place all ingredients in a saucepan, stirring to combine. Bring to a simmer, cover, and simmer 45-50 minutes, stirring occasionally. Set aside to cool. Pour into a cute jar (really any container, but a cute jar makes it taste even better!). This will thicken as it cools. Keeps in the refrigerator for about 10 days. Enjoy!
