  • 4 cups fresh strawberries
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 cups cane sugar
  • 6 T. Balsamic vinegar


  • Top and slice the strawberries into quarters. In a dutch oven cook the strawberries with the water till the recipe is at a boil.
  • Add the balsamic vinegar and continue cooking till recipe is at the gel point. (see gel point instructions) During the cooking process continue stirring to keep the mixture from burning.
  • Ladle into hot jars and process in water bath for 10 minutes. Makes 4 half pints. 
  • The color and flavor was amazing in this jam. It reminds me of a red velvet cake.  We reworked the original recipe since the original one only called for 3 tablespoons of balsamic and that was too subtle.
  • We added more, tasted, till we got it perfect. A few of the ladies felt it still needed more so they added an additional 1/2 teaspoon of balsamic to the top of the jar before we water bathed.
