Peppered Balsamic Berry Jam

I may earn a commission if you click on links in this post and make a purchase.

We’ve eaten the first handful of strawberries from our small patch this past weekend and I don’t mind saying that they are pretty darn yummy.  However, our small patch doesn’t really give us enough berries for the amount we eat so we bought some more as well.  We’ve frozen some but most will be eaten fresh.  I also wanted to play a little with an idea I had for jam.  The resulting, Peppered Balsamic Berry Jam is pretty darn good if I do say so myself.  It might seem like a strange flavor combination but I assure you it’s positively yummy.

This jam sounds so sophisticated. I'm definitely intrigued by the flavor combo. I have a sweet treat linky party going on at my blog till Monday night and I'd love it if you'd come by and link your jam up.

Strawberry season is over in PA & I wonder how other berries would work?

Roze, I grew up in western Pennsylvania and I think the plump wild blackberries I remember from my childhood would be awesome in this recipe...

I just recently made a very similar jam with just Strawberries and it was AB-SOL-LUTELY fantastic!

I'll have to try this with different berries now!
