    An otherwise typical recipe for strawberry jam, but with a touch of balsamic vinegar added for a deliciously different kick. Try serving with pancakes and ice cream or mascarpone cheese for a quick and sophisticated pud.

    I love this recipe. The only thing I have changed is to use preserving sugar to help it set.  -  23 Jul 2014


    Excellent. Had a little difficulty getting it to set to my liking, but persevered and I'm very impressed with the result. Will definitely make again.  -  21 Jun 2014
