Spicy Small Batch Strawberry Jam | cookglobaleatlocal.comAs much as I love canning and I have cozy memories of days spent in the kitchen putting up preserves, I have difficulty finding the time to do such things with my own children.  Moreover, I am always curious about exploring new combinations and flavors.  So, I have trouble committing to big batches.

Enter fresh, seasonal, small-batch jams.  With recipes like this one, I can make the most of the season’s bounty and enjoy a bit of variety too.  Better yet, this quick, small recipe calls for significantly less sugar than a traditional jam recipe.

This jam is a lot more like a conserve than a traditional strawberry jam.  It is filled with fruit, not sugar.

I was inspired to spice up my jams when I was in Paris a few years ago.  One of my favorite gourmet food shops offered me a taste of their strawberry jam.  One bite of this unusual jam hooked me because it was aromatic with spices.  In fact, the jam was seasoned with garam masala, a classic Indian spice mix!

Considering my love affair with spices, I don’t know why I never thought of that!  So, having recently prepared my Chinese Five Spice Powder to share with you, I decided to add it to this year’s jam.  The results?  Delicious!!  Bon appétit!
