  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 1 tbsp Lemon Juice


  • 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.
  • Lots of water will come from strawberry this way. Put a stainless steel plate in the freezer.
  • Now put the sauce pan on heat and keep mixing. Bring this to a boil and simmer for 10 mins.
  • The jam will be thick now.
  • Now take the plate out and drop a spoonful of juice in it. It will get thick and be like jam consistency.
  • If it is still watery you can put it back on stove and cook for few more mins.
  • 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 sterilized jar and put in fridge.
