Boozy strawberry and lavender jam

Super simple recipe, easy to make and very tasty. However be careful with the lavender. Most lavender springs sold by florist have lavender essential oils sprayed on them to intensify the scent… which makes them unfit for cooking.

1.5 kg of strawberries
1 cup of cider (but not ice cider)
1 cup brown sugar
2 table spoon of lavender flowers.


1. Wash and cut the strawberries. Put in a large, thick bottom pot with the sugar, cider and lavender flowers.

2. Over medium heat bring to a boil. Keep an eye on it, it will try to bubble over.

3. Lower the heat to medium-low and simmer until the berries have completely broken down. Stir often.

4. Pour into sterile jars and process as usual for jam. Makes about 20 oz of jam.
