6. Simmer for approximately 15 minutes until the strawberries become soft.  Using a potato masher, mash the strawberries so there are no recognizable sections.  If you have an immersion blender, you can use this instead.

7. Simmer for another 15-45 minutes, stirring occasionally.  The longer the mixture simmers, the thicker the consistency.  (Remember, this will not be as thick as the consistency made with sugar and/or pectin).

8. Strawberry Honey Jam can either be placed in freezer safe jars, or canned using a water bath for 10 minutes.
