I know by the name of it, it might sound bizarre but it really isn’t. Thyme has a citrus, lemony note to it and goes great with fruits. I’ve made my own version replacing half of the sugar with agave syrup for a not-so overly sweet jam that can very well go with any breakfast. From toast to pancakes or crepes, even a classic peanut butter and jelly sandwich. You may want to try it with some soft cheeses like brie as well.
You can easily make some of the best jam at home with very little work by following this recipe and use it as a general guideline to make others as well. If you’ve never made jam before, you’ll realize how simple it is and want to get creative with it. Not only that but it’s always a plus when you can control the amount of sugar that goes in it. If you want to, you can always replace the agave syrup with real maple syrup (not Aunt Jemima!) for a more concentrated flavor.
Homemade goodies like this are such a timeless idea and an inexpensive gift to give friends and family all year round. It means most knowing that you made it yourself and can share your recipe along with it. I hope you enjoy this one as much as I do!
