This recipe for Paleo Strawberry Jam is made from fresh strawberries, strawberry wine (or water if you don’t imbibe), lemon juice, honey and mint to give it a little levity. Every now and again, I like to make this for a treat, as it does have some honey in it. Some quick notes, I’d really watch this off and on, as it can tend to clump if not mixed continually. Also, you really don’t want to have the heat too high, or again, it will clump. Otherwise, it’s a breeze.
Well, Angel took a job working for a company called Tratify. We’re really excited and I know that he’s really enjoying rebuilding the brand and the user experience for the company. If you haven’t heard of it yet, give it a little time…Angel is working on it. ;) So with the new job comes travel to Baltimore, where the company is based. Between the two of us on the road, we’re hardly ever home! But nothing makes me love him more than coming home from a week on the road!
Recipe: Paleo Strawberry Jam
- 1 ½ cups Strawberries
- ¼ cup Strawberry Wine (or Water)
- 1 ½ Tbsp Lemon Juice
- 2 ½ Tbsp Rapsflower Blossom Honey
- 5 fresh Mint leaves
- We like to use a savory honey, like rapsflower blossom honey, but any type will do just fine. You just may taste a little more honey flavor if you don’t get a delicate-tasting kind.
- Hull and chop the strawberries. I like to take half of them and quickly pulse them in a food processor or blender, but that’s just to save time.
- Combine the strawberries, wine or water (I like the flavor of red or strawberry wine and the alcohol cooks out, but if you are a strict Paleo practicioner, then go with water), lemon juice and honey in a blender or food processor and pulse a couple of times to break up the fruit and incorporate the honey.
- Then cut the mint leaves in half and add them and the blueberries to a small saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil and then turn the heat down to low (~2.5) and simmer until the jam is thick. You’ll want to stir this occasionally, to keep the jam from getting gummy or clumpy. This process should take about 20-25 minutes.
