Strawberry Jam

Adapted from Epicurious

Yield: 2 cups

 

Ingredients

  • 1 pint strawberries
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice

Method:

  1. Wash strawberries and lemons.
  2. Cut green tops off of strawberries and cut strawberries into slices.
  3. Cut lemon in half and squeeze out lemon juice into a bowl. Place a mesh strainer over the bowl before squeezing the lemon to catch the seeds.
  4. Place a small saucepan on the stove over medium heat.
  5. Add sliced strawberries, ¼ cup sugar and 1 tablespoon lemon juice to the pan.
  6. Bring mixture to a rolling boil. Stir frequently with a wooden spoon and mash the strawberries slightly with a potato masher.
  7. Turn the heat down to medium low and simmer for 10 minutes.
  8. Test jam by putting a teaspoon of jam on a plate and swirling the plate around gently. If the jam runs, cook for 2-5 minutes longer.
  9. Transfer jam to clean glass jars and cool. Refrigerate after completely cooled.
