Every morning we've been eating these vitamin C packed, gooey, chunky preserves. No matter whether you spread them on a rice cake with a little cream cheese, place a dollop on top of yogurt or a spoonful served on top of oatmeal or pancakes, it's pure heaven in every bite.

Ingredients

Strawberries 2 Pint , hulled, halved (about 5 cups)
Lemon 1 Large , juiced
Agave nectar/Honey 4 Tablespoon

Directions

MAKING

1. Place all the ingredients in a medium heavy bottomed saucepan and bring to a boil.

2. Reduce heat to medium/low and cook uncovered for 50-60 minutes, stirring occasionally until most of the liquid has evaporated (you want the preserves to have little chunks of strawberries).

3. Cool and bottle in sterilized jars. Store in the refrigerator as there is no sugar in this preserve.

SERVING

4. Serve over toast, muffins, rice cake, on top of yogurt or use in desserts.

This recipe makes about 1 1/2 cup
