Strawberry jam

Strawberries!!! yes that is how I scream when I see fresh and luscious Strawberries in any fruit shop. Winter is the season of these juicy beauties so I thought of making Strawberry jam. It is a very simple recipe and the result is always good! See the recipe below. Hey but before that, do you know that Strawberries contain antioxidants, minerals and lot vitamins which contributes to the overall health benefits of this amazing fruit. And by the way, I have not used any preservative in this jam recipe.

Ingredients:

  • Strawberries 500 gms
  • Sugar 1 cup
  • Lemon juice 1 table spoon
  • Sterilized jar 1 (To keep the jam)

Method:

First clean the strawberries and chop into medium pieces.

Now heat the pan and add the chopped strawberries along with sugar.

You will see Strawberries start leaving the water and also the sugar will start to melt.

Keep stirring with a wooden spatula till you see the strawberry pulp is thick and sticking to the spatula.

In the end, add one spoon of lemon juice and stir well.

Now you can fill the jam in a sterilized jar and keep it for at least 2 weeks.

The shelf life of this jam is less because there are no preservatives added.
