I created this recipe using two ingredients that I love: strawberry and thyme. This recipe is ideal slathered on homemade farm biscuits.—Sharon Demers, Dolores, Colorado

"This was an excellent jam, some of the best I've ever tasted! My family felt the same way and I ended up making 24 jars to give as gifts, keeping many for myself of course... it is amazing what happens when you combine a minuscule amount of fresh thyme (growing on my desk) with fresh strawberries. It was easy to make, colorful, looks and smells fantastic- in other words, it's a 5-star keeper!"
