Earlier this week I was enjoying prepping my annual strawberry jam. It was a quiet morning and naptime, so I was alone in the kitchen. It all seemed so perfect, I just couldn’t resist pulling out my camera and capturing the process.

I hadn’t planned on posting this, since I’ve shared a strawberry vanilla bean jam [6] recipe before, but this year’s jam comes with a new little twist and I figured what the heck.  It’s too good not to share. So here you have it— strawberry and rosewater jam with vanilla bean.

I am obsessed with the strawberry and rosewater combination right now. If you haven’t tried it, I highly recommend it. Since strawberries (and other berries) are part of the rose family, they go together very, very well. The rosewater isn’t a strong flavor, but it helps enhance the strawberry flavor.

I loved how this jam turned out and I’m so glad I’ll get it enjoy it all year round!

  • 2 ½ cups granulated sugar (500 grams)
