Balsamic Vinegar-Strawberry Jam

Eating your food from the garden you grow – isn’t just to prove a healthy source for your food.  Part of this Agrarian life style is to get back to what our parents and grandparents knew as a day-to-day way of life.  Self sustaining – growing from the land and of course with that bounty, we need to preserve the harvest.

Jam’s are just a way to keep summer’s best in our reach through the cold winter months.  This is why canning and preserving has a place at this meat eaters dinner table.  We have added Balsamic Vinegar to this freezer jam – it accents the strawberry flavor and gives this jam a robust taste.  We hope you like it as well.
