Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pints fresh strawberries, hulled and halved
  • 2 cups of sugar
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 vanilla bean, split and seeds scraped

Instructions

1

Combine the sugar, lemon juice, and add the vanilla bean pod and the seeds in a small saucepan and cook over very low heat for 10 minutes, until the sugar is dissolved.

2

Add the strawberries and continue to cook over very low heat for 20 minutes, until the strawberries release some of their juices and the mixture boils slowly. Cook until a small amount of the juice gels on a very cold plate. (Keep one in the freezer.)

3

Remove the vanilla bean pod. Pour strawberries in vanilla syrup carefully into canning jars and either seal or keep refrigerated. Use immediately, or follow proper canning guidelines.

4

The best use for breakfast with pancakes, waffles, or simply put it on top of the ice cream.

5

Sometimes, I use basil and mint instead of vanilla bean.
