Lavender adds a floral note, but you can omit it if you like. Prep and Cook Time: 45 minutes, plus 2 hours to chill. Notes: To see whether the jam has cooked long enough to thicken to your taste, put a tablespoonful onto a plate you've chilled for 20 minutes in the freezer. The jam will cool and thicken to its final consistency.
