Strawberry Jam.


Isn't it marvelous when you go to the supermarket & they have just want you want on special? I had a hankering for some homemade strawberry jam, & there they were, tubs & tubs of gorgeous strawberries, all on sale, just for me. The house smells divine at the moment, there is no smell like fresh strawberry jam. The problem will be keeping it away from the other people who live in this house, so I don't think that it will last for long.


Strawberry Jam

Ingredients:

  • 1.5kg hulled strawberries (I do chop them up into big pieces)
  • 0.5 cup lemon juice (I only use the fresh stuff)
  • 5 cups sugar
Method:
  1. Combine all the ingredients in a large saucepan.
  2. Stir over heat, without boiling, until all the sugar has dissolved.
  3. Bring to the boil, & then simmer, uncovered,  without stirring, for 20 minutes or until the jam jells when tested.
  4. Pour the jam into hot & sterilised jars & seal.
  5. This recipe makes about 5 cups of jam.
