Foolproof Strawberry Jam
Have an abundance of perfectly ripe strawberries on your hands? Sounds like you’re ready to make jam. We know what you’re thinking—but trust us, making your own strawberry jam at home is surprisingly easy, especially with this foolproof recipe in hand. The ingredient list is concise, but every element plays an important role. Adding water at the beginning of the cooking process keeps your sugar from burning before the berries can begin to release their juices; however, the water evaporates as the jam simmers, so it doesn’t dilute the final product. Meanwhile, utilizing pectin to thicken the jam allows you to encapsulate some of the strawberries’ fresh vibrancy, rather than having to extensively stew the berries down to reach a rich, jammy consistency. Red wine vinegar brightens the strawberry jam’s flavor without making it distinctly tangy. And a finishing touch of butter takes care of the little white air bubbles that can make a jam cloudy. Your completed homemade jam can provide a welcome burst of farm-fresh berry flavor to any number of foods; try it on biscuits or toast, spooned over oatmeal or ice cream, drizzled onto waffles or pound cake, whisked into a vinaigrette, or dolloped onto a cheese board. And for a herbaceous flavor variation on your next batch of strawberry jam, try adding 3-4 sprigs of an herb like basil, mint, tarragon, or thyme to the jam while it cooks (simply remove and discard the herbs before jarring).
This vibrant jam recipe is the perfect way to preserve a bounty of summer blueberries and enjoy long after their season is over. The fresh ginger adds a delightful pop of flavor, but isn’t overpowering. Serve your homemade blueberry jam on a hearty slab of toast, spooned over warm biscuits or pancakes, or alongside a wheel of Brie.
