    What a fantastic idea! That sounds like it’s be amazing. My mind of full of ideas for how to use the finished jam, too – I wonder if it’d be good shaken into a summer cocktail?

    Thanks Gen. I put some strawberry jam on my gruel this morning with blueberries, pumpkin seeds and raw cacao and goji berries. Hell Yeah!

    What a great idea to add black pepper to balsamic strawberries! Never thought of that addition but I can just imagine it would work very well.

    I have been seeking inspiration today before hauling out some berries from the freezer to make more jam & jelly. This recipe sounds like what I was looking for!!

    I am going to try it with either loganberries or blackberries or maybe even salal…

    Thanks so much!!
