It’s still technically strawberry season in San Diego, and that means strawberries with everything – including jam! This delicious recipe from The Cottage in La Jolla goes perfectly with their famous homemade scones, though really it goes with anything and makes for a great snack (or breakfast) all season long. Here is the official recipe courtesy of The Cottage.
12 quarts strawberries
10 quart sugar
1 table spoon cinnamon
1/2 cup lemon juice
2 tbs vanilla
1 cup pectin
2 quart water
1. In a food processor, process strawberries until coarsely chopped and set it aside.
2. Transfer to a large skillet and stir in sugar, pectin, cinnamon, vanilla and lemon juice.
3. Add water and bring it to a boil.
4. Combine strawberries with the sugary water mix and cook over medium-high, stirring frequently, until jam is thickened and bubbles completely cover surface (9 to 10 minutes).
5. Transfer jam to a jar and let cool to room temperature.
