• 4 Cups quartered strawberries
• grated rind of 1 lime, juice of 1/2 lime
• 2 Tbsp honey

Remove from heat and allow to sit for another 2 minutes until slightly cooled.
Place jam in Mason jars or glass bowl, uncovered, until almost cool. Cover and refrigerate as usual – will keep for about 10 days.
Serve on toast for breakfast, as a sweet and natural snack, or even on your favourite yogourt and granola recipe.
Yield: About four small Mason jars (great as a gift idea!)
