Strawberry Chocolate jam

add jaggery or palm sugar instead of white sugar
Your concept of Jam won't be the same with this recipe. I don't use jams over bread any more, however over morning cereals is an exotic addition. This particular recipe use palm sugar and jaggery, so you can eat with confidence your sweets.

This recipe is fortifying for vatta dosha.
Kapha: add chilli or ginger.
Pitta: eat in moderation.

4 cups organic strawberries clean and cut in slices.
2 tablespoons lemon juice.
1 tablespoon grated organic orange ring ( optional.)
3 tsp of satya spices heart blend ( main content is cocoa, chillies, cumin and 3 other spices.)
1 package powdered pectin
1 cup cane sugar.
1/2 cup grated jaggery
5 medium mason jar, sterilize.

In a large pot, put the strawberries with lemon juice and pectin. Bring to a rolling boil for a minute over a high heat, stirring constantly.
Add sugars and bring to to rolling boil again, stirring constantly. Keep at a hard boil for 1 minute, still stirring.
Remove from heat and skim foam off top.
Pour or spoon into the clean jars, seal and heat process the jars.
If you don't want to go with the heat process you can freeze the jam. They can keep refrigerate up to 3 weeks.

They make great summer gifts.
