Ingredients to make Classic Strawberry Jam

How to make Classic Strawberry Jam

  1. Quarter the Strawberries and place in a large cooking pot with the lemon juice and sugar.Mix well and heat on the lowest for 15-20 minutes till the fruit is very soft.
  2. Take a potato masher and mash the fruit in the boiling jam for 5-6 minutes till the strawberries are disintegrated but can be seen in the liquid.
  3. After another 5 minutes of cooking add the butter and raise the heat and boil rapidly till the jam reaches setting point?.See notes
  4. Take off heat and cover the pot with a clean kitchen towel and let it come to room temperature.
  5. Spoon into clean glass jars and close tightly.Use clean spoons while using and keep it covered and refrigerated for longer shelf life.Use as needed.
My Tip: ?Setting test – After adding the butter,keep 2-3 clean small plates or saucers into the freezer compartment of your refrigerator.When you feel the jam has set then spoon a few drops of jam on a plate and leave for 2-3 seconds.Then tilt the plate.If the jam does not run/trickle down and stays firm at its place it is ready.
