Strawberry Basil Jam


Make sure not to over do the basil. You want strawberry jam with a little basil, not basil jam with a little strawberry! You cannot substitute the fresh basil leaves with dried. And given the current craziness about the Va Va Voom Vanilla Strawberry Jam, I thought it was time you realised I am not a one trick pony! Use some of that amazing basil that is out and about now and get your jam on!
