    Thorsten's Note:

    Strawberry and Basil are a wonderful combination. The sweetness of the strawberries goes well together with the herbal flavors of basil. The lime adds the freshness, which I like about this jam. I'm using here the "Super Gelling Sugar" from Dr. Oetker (German brand), which makes it possible to reduce the sugar amount to 1/3 of fruit weigth.

      NOTE on "Dr. Oetker's Super Gelling Sugar 3:1". Dr. Oetker is a well known brand in Germany. There are several gelling sugars available. The "3:1" super gelling sugar already contains pectin and you only need 1/3 of sugar. If you can't get it, you could also use Dr. Oetker's 2:1 super gelling sugar. Follow the instructions on the package.
