Strawberry Mango Mojito Jam

You might remember that earlier this month I had a Strawberry Jam Session after getting a big old bucket of fresh berries at the Asheville Herb Festival. Well, here is the BEST recipe that came out of that day of experimentation – Strawberry Mango Mojito Jam!

This recipe is small, and fills only two 8 ounce jars.

Ingredients
  1. 1 Mango
  2. 1 pint of Strawberries (you might not use them all!)
  3. Sprig of fresh Mint, minced
  4. Sprinkle of Salt
  5. 1.5 tablespoons of Bell Classic Pectin
  6. 1 cup Sugar (white or brown)
  7. Rum (I used dark rum, but white Rum would work, too)
  8. Cardamom, dried powder
  9. Ginger, dried powder
Instructions
  1. Chop the mango and pulse it in a blender, but don't puree it. Just break it down a bit, and pour it into a measuring cup.
  2. Add enough mashed strawberries to the measuring cup to bring it to 1 1/3 cups.
  3. Pour the fruit into a pot and turn on medium high heat.
  4. Gradually add pectin, stirring well to blend.
  5. Once it is at a rolling boil, add 1 cup of sugar all at once and stir well to dissolve the sugar.
  6. Stir in the mint.
  7. Allow it to return to a boil for one minute and then remove the pot from heat.
  8. Just before ladling, add a dash of cardamom, a dash or two of ginger, and a hearty splash of rum.
  9. Stir well. Ladle into jars. leaving 1/4 inch headspace. Wipe the jar threads, add lid, put on ring and gently hand-tighten.
  10. Process in a water bath for 10 minutes.
