Strawberry jam with mint and port

At the height of summer and strawberry season it is perfect time to make delicious jams. I made a few variations with strawberries. Today I tell you how to make strawberry jam with mint and port. Exciting and aromatic jam, perhaps the most delicious jam I've ever tried.

500 g strawberries (fresh or frozen)
5 leaves fresh mint
300 gr. sugar
4 tbsp port wine (sherry).

Clean strawberries, put them in the pan, sprinkle with sugar. Put on the medium heat, bring to a boil and cook for 2 minutes. Leave to cool, keep in a cool place for a couple of hours (or overnight), to allow berries to soak in syrup.

Pour the port and put a mint leaves. Put the pot on low heat. Bring it to boil, skim the foam. Cook for 5-10 minutes (depending on the variety of strawberry, if more juice was formed it need more time to boil). Remove from heat. Remove mint leaves. Cool and pour into sterilized jars.
