ABOUT Strawberry Jam without Pectin RECIPE

This Strawberry Jam has no pectin and came out beautiful. I wish I knew if there was anything natural to increase the shelf life a little longer.

Ingredients Serving: 8

  1. 1 Kg Strawberries (4 cups) Chopped
  2. 1/4 Cup Sugar (more if required)
  3. 1 Lemon Juice
  4. A pinch of Salt


  1. Wash and keep few spoons in the freezer to chill. We will be needing them later.
  2. Wash and chop the strawberries into large chunks, discarding the cores and bruised areas.
  3. Put the strawberries,sugar and salt into a large pot on medium flame. Pour in lemon juice and drop lemon rinds into the pot.
  4. Mash the strawberries a little to reach the chunky consistency / texture. Bring the mixture to boil while stirring frequently.
  5. Note to check when the bubbles become smaller and thicker. It would take about 7-10 minutes to reach there.
  6. Bring out a spoon and drop a few drops, wait for a minute to run your finger through. It it leaves a path, then its done.
  7. If it comes together, leave it for a few more minutes to boil. Check it once again.
  8. To sterilize jars:
  9. Wash the jars and preheat the oven to 160 degree celsius. Keep the jars in the oven for about 20 minutes.
  10. Pour hot jam into the hot jars. Do not pour hot jam in cold jars, as the glass will shatter.
  11. Seal the jars when both the jam and jar has reached room temperature.
  12. The jam can stay up for 3-4 weeks when refrigerated.
  13. Serve by spreading it on a slice of bread for best taste.
