I made this with blueberries instead of raspberries and it is delicious. I used my mom's homegrown lavender and fresh blueberrries in season. This is fantastic on biscuits with butter. Thanks for the recipe!
09/07/09: The jars are bubbling away in the water bath now, so I can't tell you how it will set up. I did use a little less lavender as another reviewer suggested. Licking the spoons put me in flavor heaven, reminding me of my trip to France. Thank you so much for posting! 09/09/09: The jam set up perfectly and it is wonderful. Thank you again!
Loved this jam! I used frozen Mixed Berries (strawberries, blueberries, blackberries & raspberries). While I was cooking my sister commented that the house smelled like soap..hahaha. Due to the Lavender I'm sure. She was skeptical at first but after tasting the finished product she loved it! I gave small jars as Christmas gifts and everyone loved it! Again...a little skeptical about the Lavender but after one taste they too changed their mind! Serving Suggestion: Put some jam on a buttery cracker and top it off with a piece of cheddar cheese. Enjoy! Also a wonderful accompaniment to turkey or ham in leu of Cranberry. The sweet with the salty make a great combo!!!!
What a fun recipe! Put up several jars of this during raspberry season. I did cut back on the lavender (eyeballed the amount and used about 1-2 Tblsp) because FIL didn't want the jam "all fru-fru". It came out great- not too sweet (as some jam recipes can be) with a wonderful raspberry flavor and a hint of lavender. Thanks so much. I'm going to try it again today with blackberries and I think I'll fru-fru it up as FIL is nowhere in sight!
