Strawberry POM jam

So I had an idea... take the strawberry agave jam I made a little while ago... and add in pomegranate seeds!! I mean I already used POM juice in the jam... why not go full on with the seeds!?

So what do you think? :) An even tarter jam, with a little added snap of the pom seeds! Wicked fun!

check out the cute POM logo on the labels... LOL oh wait is that copyright infringement??? It's not like I'm selling these so no worries right? :D

Tart Strawberry POM Jam sweetened with Agave
recipe by steph chows

2.5 lb bag of whole frozen strawberries
1 cup agave nectar
1 cup pomegranate and nectarine juice or strait up POM juice
1 package Ball no sugar fruit pectin
1 pomegranate, seeded and skin/pith discarded
7 sterilized 1/2 pint jars

Place frozen strawberries in a large pot, heat on medium until they start to thaw and sauce up. Once they are soft enough mash them with a potato masher. Add agave and juice and turn heat to medium high. Bring to a rolling boil, stirring the whole time. Keep stirring and let it roll for 1 minute. Gradually add in pectin and continue to stir and boil for 3 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in POM seeds, pour into sterilized jars. Process in boiling water for 10 minutes. Remove from water and let cool undisturbed overnight. For more specifics on canning check our this post here.

This jam was super flavorful and the pom juice gave it a nice tart kick!

Excellent! I love that you added POM seeds- my son and I have been addicted to the seeds lately and this sounds great- may even motivate me to get into the exchange just so I can have some of that jam:)

Oh I adore this idea! And seriously, what a fantastic gift; this isn't any sort of jam you'll be able to find in stores. :)

Steph, what a great idea! I love pomegranate seeds and I'll bet they make a terrific addition to your already yummy jam. Nice!

Wishing you and your family a delicious and Happy Thanksgiving!!

That's a great idea! I love it when there is some texture to jam other than jellyness.
