Strawberry Balsamic Pepper Jam

As strawberry season is upon us, there are loads of recipes you can make.
Try this one with some older strawberries that might have gone forgotten in your fridge!

Strawberry Balsamic Pepper Jam
1 Quart Strawberries
1/4 cup Sugar
1/4 cup Balsamic Vinegar
1 tsp Cinnamon
1 tsp Salt
2 tsp Black Pepper

Easy money!
Stem and cut the strawberries then combine all ingredients into a saucepan. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Simmer for about 20 minutes (or until desired consistency) stirring often. Remember that the jam will thicken when it cools.

This will certainly be on the peppery remember you can always add more pepper....but you cannot take any away!
