Strawberry Jam

Adapted from Epicurious

Yield: 2 cups



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


  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.
