    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!!

    I have been surfing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all web owners and
    bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be a lot more useful than ever before.
