The San Francisco Bay Area is home to many strawberry farmers who start to peddle their delicious fresh picked berries come early May at all the local farmers markets and corners of main intersections and keep coming until Winter. This dazzling flavor combination came by way of a request at one of my local craft fairs from a huge fan of this pairing from her days of living in England. After just a single test batch, I knew that this would be a keeper!!
Our delicious strawberry champagne jam is great for anything from bumping your PB&J up a notch to dressing a nice cheese. Our recipe uses only fresh strawberries, extra dry champagne, pure cane sugar, a little citrus pectin for help gelling and a generous splash of freshly squeezed lemon juice for a little zing to the flavor in this decadent combination.
