A quick and easy one pot strawberry jam. 



2 ½ cups fresh strawberries, hulled

½ to ¾ cup sugar 

Juice of half a lemon

Splash of bourbon

Pinch of Kosher Salt


  1. In a medium saucepan over medium heat combine all of the ingredients.  Smash the strawberries with the back of a wooden spoon OR use a stick blender to smooth out the texture. Bring the mixture to a boil and then reduce the heat and continue to simmer for 10-15 minutes, stirring constantly. 
  2. Pour jam in a mason jar and let cool before covering and storing in the fridge.



*optional* to create a thicker jam, mix 1 tablespoon of cornstarch with 1 tablespoon of water to make a slurry.  Pour the cornstarch in the jam in the last 2-3 minutes of simmering.
