Recipe Recommendation: Tarragon Strawberry Jam

Strawberries have been in the San Francisco farmer's markets for a month now, and I have been busy buying them up and making jams! I bought enough strawberries for three batches of jam, so after making one batch of plain strawberry jam, I decided I wanted to try a different variation of strawberry jam. I thought that the delicate, fruity herb tarragon would go nicely with strawberries, and turned out really yummy. Basically, I followed the instructions for plain strawberry jam from the paper insert that came in my Sure-Jell pectin box, and to that I added 1/4 cup of fresh chopped tarragon leaves after the sugar had dissolved. I imagine this simple step would work with any basic strawberry jam recipe, even low-sugar ones. This jam, spread on a slice of warm homemade bread, was pure heaven.
