Homemade Strawberry Jam

So there was a sale on Strawberries last night...


So I decided to buy 4 packs and make strawberry jam without looking at any recipe, just cooking from the heart ya know?

Time: 2 hours + cool time

Ingredients

• 4 Packs of Strawberries
• 1/4 cup Coconut Water
• 2 tbsp Lemon Juice
• 3 tbsp Honey
• 1/2 cup Granulated Sugar
• Nutmeg
• Salt


Instructions

Begin by heating the coconut water in a large pot. One by one chop the strawberries and throw them in with the coconut water. I left my strawberries mostly whole, up to preference. Bring to a boil stirring consistently. Drop down to simmer and add honey. Bring back to boil stirring and scraping the bottom of the pan to avoid crustiness. Simmer again and add sugar. repeat the boil and simmer, add lemon juice. After the last boil, turn the heat off and add a dash of nutmeg and salt. Keep stirring for about 10 minutes. Once cool enough pour into jars or tupperware and refrigerate  overnight, or 2 hours. Enjoy on toast, granola, with dessert, or just with a spoon :)
