Jam is maybe the best thing in the world, next to booze.  Which is why I’ve been making as much of it as possible.  The first batch I created (raspberry and ginger) made my roommate drool and this second one made me salivate/fooled my mother into thinking it was made with rhubarb “but better”.

This one is made with strawberries, candied orange peel, orange juice and a lot of ground coriander.  The coriander oddly has an orange aroma to it when ground from the seeds in a mortar and perfectly compliment the rest of the orange goodies.  There’s a nice juxtaposition of the sweet strawberry aroma and the tang of the jam itself.  Best served on a spoon directly to mouth.
