I’m making preserves (for the 1st time)

2 cups of strawberries
1 handful of blueberries
1/2 cup of balsamic vinegar
1 cup coconut nectar
1/2 lime (substituted for lemon)
1 basil leaf (from the plant growing in the kitchen window :))

I set it on the lowest heat and am letting it slowly break down and combine.

I came across a lot of different recipes, and even tried calling my great-grandmother (she wasn’t home), so I’m just doing this based on instinct. I’m excited to see how it turns out.

Also, I’m still sick.
