Strawberry jam Easy Food

Makes 4-6 jars

1kg fresh strawberries, washed and hulled

150ml water

1kg sure set sugar/jam sugar

  1. Place the strawberries and water into a heavy-based saucepan over a medium-high heat until the berries become soft. Use a potato masher to mash the fruit; mash completely if you do not like ‘bits’ in your jam, otherwise mash about 90% and leave the rest intact.
  2. Warm the sugar in a low oven and add to the fruit. Stir over a low temperature until the sugar has fully dissolved.
  3. Increase the temperature and bring the jam to the boil for 10-15 minutes until the setting point as been reached.
  4. Spoon off any scum from the top of the jam. Carefully pour it into prepared jars, then seal and label.
