Title:   Strawberry Jam
Category:   Sauces & Gravies - Clean (Only natural/organic ingredients), Vegetarian
From:   Lisa Boucher
2 lbs. strawberries- fresh are best, but can use frozen
1 to 2 T cornstarch
1 to 2 T water
Honey or agave to taste (approx. 1/2 c)
Directions:   Cut up strawberries and place them in a medium sized sauce pan. Boil over medium heat. Add honey or agave. While they are boiling mash them with a potato masher and continue mixing so they don't burn. Combine the cornstarch with the water in a small glass and mix until smooth. Pour the cornstarch mixture into the mashed strawberries and continue mixing. Jam will slowly begin to thicken. Boil over low heat for another 5 to 10 minutes and then pour jam into desired containers.

If you are canning, seal the jar completely before storing. Otherwise, store jars in your fridge or freezer. There are no preservatives in this jam, so don't be surprised if it doesn't last as long in your fridge as store bought brands.
