Balsamic Strawberry Jam

A couple cups of strawberries from the grocery store produce isle and I visited in the kitchen today.  They landed in a pot with some Balsamic, sugar and lemon peel.  Half an hour simmering on the stove and a big spoon full on toast…I’m in strawberry heaven!  I started out thinking I’d make this for a brunch for friends but I may eat the entire half pint jar before then!  I know a couple of you are reading this right now, thinking…call me!   Girls, come on over and I’ll show you how to make this super easy recipe with some fresh strawberries, then we’ll eat another jar while we peruse over more strawberry recipes at the bottom of this post. 

Mouth watering Balsamic Strawberry jam

You will be amazed how how simple it is to make Balsamic Strawberry preserves.  While they were cooking I could only imagine how sweet and delicious they'd be. I tasted it on toast right away, but if I had some vanilla ice cream it'd be on top of that too or imagine a spoonful on some cheesecake. Oh yes!

All you need to make this super easy and quick delicacy  is a couple cups of strawberries, which is about one of those containers full in the grocery produce section, then a small measure of sugar, a little Balsamic, salt and lemon peel. Really.  The kids are going to love it and so will hubs.  I already do.

  1. I love this idea! I bet this would be good on fish and chicken too. Can't wait to try it.

  2. Yum! I am crazy about strawberries and I love the sound of this!

  3. What lovely flavors together. Strawberries are so good and fresh. I do love balsamic, so I can see how yummy mixing the two flavors would be.
