Pepper-berry Balsamic Jam
6 c crushed strawberries
1 c sugar
1/4 c aged balsamic vinegar (the thick kind)
1/4 tsp salt
1tsp freshly ground pepper
20 peppercorns
4 1/2 tsp low sugar pectin

1tbs butter (at the very end)

Mix all together except pectin and butter, bring to a boil. Add pectin and boil for 1 minute. Add butter and stir until foam clears. Pour into sterilized jars and seal. Water bath for 10 minutes. Remove from bath allow to cool without disturbing.

This is a low sugar jam so it isn’t going to have an eternal long shelf life like high sugar jams do… Enjoy on a price of toasted rustic or sour dough bread with fresh goat cheese or brie.
