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!
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.
