Y’all know how much I love the combination of strawberry and basil. With a handful of fresh basil coming from my garden every single day, I was using it on salads and of course making plenty of pesto and drying some for later. But there are only so many days a year you can do that! I needed new basil recipes, stat. This Strawberry Basil Jam came to the rescue, offering up a delicious snack, ice cream topping, or even salad dressing. Feel free to mince or even puree the strawberries for a finer texture!
