Ingredients
  

  • 1 Kg Fresh Strawberries
  • 500 grams Sugar Adjust as per the level of sweetness you like
  • 2 Lemons Medium Size

Instructions
 

  • First off all wash and pat dry the strawberries. Now chop the strawberries into small pieces. Take a glass jar to store the cooked jam in it and make it completely dry either putting it oven for few minutes or keep it in sunlight for few hours.
  • Take a Non stick pan and keep it on low flame. Add strawberries and sugar to the pan and with the help of a masher slightly mash the strawberries.
  • Now raise the flame to medium and cook the jam until it reaches 1/2 of its quantity, stirring occasionally.
  • Take water in a clear bowl and add a drop a little jam in it. If it sets at the bottom without dissolving in water, the jam is cooked.
  • Switch off the flame and store it in the glass jar once its completely cooled. Enjoy it as  spreading on bread or scone. Have it your way!

Notes

  •  I didn’t put any preservative or any artificial colour/flavouring to the jam, but you can. Adding preservative will have its own taste on the jam. Sugar on its own acts as great preservative.
  • You can easily store this jam for 4-6 months in Fridge. (You can keep it in smaller bottles and open only the one you need to use, this will extend the life of jam)
  • Don’t over mash the strawberries, slightly mashed strawberry gives small chunks in the jam which taste really nice.
