This jam sounds so delicious & the directions are clear enough that I think even I could make this. Wouldn’t jars of this jam make great gifts? Maybe as part of a gift basket or a hostess gift. Yum.
The one thing I’d change is to remove the lavendar just after taking the cover off in Step 2. I don’t think she meant to keep the lavendar in the mixture while it’s boiling.
I don’t think I’d add the sprig of lavendar to each jar after boiling either. I’d be afraid of eventual contamination of the jam. Maybe I’m being too careful, but that just makes sense to me. If you are gifting these you could tie a sprig of dried lavendar to the jar with a ribbon & make a nice label for the jar. If you don’t want the lavender in the recipe at all you can leave it out of course & the jam will still be delicious.
