Strawberry Basil Jam-The Little Shop of Olive Oils

Strawberry Basil Jam



  • In a large bowl, combine the chopped strawberries and granulated sugar. Stir well to coat the strawberries with sugar. Let it sit for about 30 minutes until the strawberries release their juices.
  • Transfer the strawberry mixture to a large saucepan over medium heat.
  • Add the strawberry balsamic and lemon juice to the pan.
  • Bring the mixture to a boil, stirring frequently to prevent sticking.
  • Reduce the heat to medium-low and let it simmer for about 20-25 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the mixture thickens to your desired consistency.
  • Once the jam has thickened, remove it from the heat.
  • Stir in the olive oil and finely chopped basil leaves until well combined.
  • Allow the jam to cool slightly before transferring it to sterilized jars.
  • Seal the jars and let them cool to room temperature before refrigerating.
  • Enjoy the Strawberry Basil Jam on toast, scones, or as a topping for yogurt and desserts.
