ABOUT Classic Strawberry Jam RECIPE

Now this is a different and the most common recipe which is why the name – Classic Strawberry Jam.This recipe originated in England in the late 1700’s and has been made ever since.This jam is essentially used with all kinds of breads,buns,to sandwich cakes and also had with scones.This being the season of strawberries in Mumbai I wanted to make this jam and have a treat for Mondays and Thursdays when we have freshly baked bread for breakfast.The recipe involves ingredients you get and use everyday at home and very simple to prepare.
