Chocolate Covered Strawberry Jam

by Megan on May 1, 2008

Every since last fall, I’ve been dying to make this jam. Of course I had to wait till Strawberries were at their peak. Our strawberry patch just opened up. Big, red, ripe, delicious Strawberries in all their glory. Oh, how that makes me happy!

I saw this on some Jammin Jelly Round-up on the blog Batter-Splattered. My friend April had joined the jelly exchange, and this was the jam she sent out.I knew if it came from April, it would be good.
This recipe was so easy to make. You just cook your fruit with some sugar and vinegar and a pinch of salt. Cook it till its 220 degrees
and then add your chocolate

Swirling in the chocolate

Look at my beautiful jam!

I doubled the recipe and got 12 half-pint jars plus some extra. I had some while it was still warm on some pancakes and I was not disappointed. I think this would be excellent on a bagel with cream cheese.

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Jam
2 lbs strawberries, sliced
4 1/2 Cups sugar
2 Tbsp vinegar
pinch of salt
3 oz. of bittersweet chocolate, chopped

Combine all of the ingredients, EXCEPT the chocolate in a large pot. Bring to a rolling boil on medium-high heat, stirring frequently for about 15-20 minutes, or until you reach 220 F on a candy thermometer. Once you reach this temp, remove from heat and add the chocolate. Stir until all the chocolate has melted and is combined. Transfer to jelly jars and top with the lids. The heat from the jam should make the tops seal. Also, you don’t need to skim off the foam, once you add the chocolate and get that all mixed in, the foam dissolves back into the jam.

This jam sounds incredible! You can’t go wrong with chocolate and strawberries, and I’ve never heard of combining the two for jam! Delicious!

I have never made jam before, and I can’t remember if it’s on my 100 things to make list. Hmm.

And you’re welcome. Mine apparently arrived yesterday, but I got it mailed to my house. My cat was super excited. I have to wait until next Friday though.

I really like the sound of adding chocolate to strawberry jam. Now I am going to have to find out how it tastes. I just need to finish off the strawberry jam from last year.

Wow, that sounds awesome! Very interesting to add some chocolate – it should give an extra kick to the jam! Too bad strawberries are almost over around here.

This may be the next best thing to Nutella! Next time Rich is up there can you send him home with a jar..but you need to make sure he knows it’s for me! :)

I made this last month only used pectin and followed their guidelines. The flavor of this jam is just to die for! Thanks…

This sounds AMAZING and I plan to make this tomorrow! Please follow canning guidelines and use a boiling water bath to safely preserve your canned goods! Yes, our grandmas heat sealed it in the manner described, but why take a chance at getting very, very sick,or worse yet a child! It really doesn’t take that much more effort to do and know your beautiful strawberry jam is safe to eat!
