I adore strawberries and i love jam..So when they are put together it is a win win situation. Strawberry jams are so versatile, because you can make them and have them handy. They can be added to milkshakes, tarts or even when you bake pies or jam bars. I love homemade jam a lot because you know what goes into it, plus it is preservatives free.
Makes : 3 cups of jam
Strawberries – 30 or 3 cups of chopped strawberries
Sugar – 1 cup
Lemon Juice – 1 tblspn
Wash strawberries well in water. Remove the stalk and chop them roughly.
Now measure the plums and add it to a sauce pan.
Add in sugar and mix well. Cover with a plate and leave it sit for 2 hours, you can put this in fridge overnight too.
At this point you can turn off the heat and let the jam cool a little, add lemon juice and mix well. As the jam cools it will get thick.
Now put this in canning jar or regular sterlized jar and put in fridge.
1)You can puree strawberries if you want too and make this preserve.
