Strawberry Jam

Strawberries are a great price at the moment.  Time to make some jam.

  • 3 kg strawberries, halved and hulled
  • 3 kg sugar
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  1. Wash and sterilize jars
  2. Place strawberries in a large saucepan and mix sugar through.  Allow to sit for 2 hours to soften the fruit.
  3. Add juice of lemon and cook over medium heat stirring constantly until fruit is soft.
  4. Remove 1/3 of the fruit and set aside.
  5. Cook remaining fruit until remaining fruit is mostly dissolved and jam coats the back of the spoon.  (takes a few hours)
  6. Divide the fruit between jars and fill to the top with jam.
  7. Seal
