Strawberry Lime Jalapeño Jam

Yields 1 pint



  • 3 cups - Strawberries (fresh or thawed)
  • 1 cup – Granulated Sugar
  • 2 tbsp - Lime Juice
  • 1 each - Fresh Lime (for zest)
  • 1/2 each - Jalapeño Pepper (de-stemmed, de-seeded & diced)
  • 2 tbsp - Liquid Pectin 



1. Place strawberries in a large pot over medium heat.

2. Add lime juice.

3. De-stem and de-seed the jalapenos, and then add to the strawberries.

4. Once strawberries begin to cook and soften, add in the sugar and stir well – about 10-15 minutes.

5. Continue cooking at a simmer and stirring frequently, so not to burn the bottom.

6. Cook for about 5 minutes, add the pectin and then cook for 5 more minutes.

7. Remove from heat and strain to remove the majority of the liquid.

8. Let cool to room temperature.

9. Using a hand mixer, pulse the jam to break up large chunks, but don't make completely smooth.

10. Add lime zest.

11. Use in your My Summer Crush cocktail, enjoy with Toast or Biscuits, or store in a sealed container and keep refrigerated for up to 1 week.
