Ingredients to make Strawberry Jam

  • 4 lbs strawberries
  • 7 cups sugar
  • ½ cup lemon juice

How to make Strawberry Jam

  1. Before starting the making of Strawberry Jam , make sure you have got plenty of sterilized bottles labelled ready to use.
  2. Wash and chop the strawberries. Transfer them to a large saucepan and add in the sugar and lemon juice. Mash the strawberries with a potato masher.
  3. Heat this mixture on a low heat until all the sugar melts. Keep stirring and checking until the jam mixture starts to thicken.
  4. To test the right timing for the jam to be set – keep a saucer in the freezer. Once the mixture has been boiling for 10 minutes, take the saucer out of the freezer and place a spoonful on the the jam on the saucer.
  5. Return the saucer back to the freezer for a minute. Run a finger through the middle of the jam and if the jam doesn’t feel runny, the jam is ready to be bottled.
  6. Once the Strawberry Jam is ready, transfer it to the sterilized bottles and seal the bottles if you are not planning to eat the jam soon.

My Tip:

This Strawberry Jam recipe uses no preservatives or pectin.
