Strawberry Jam

 1 pt strawberries
 ¼ cup sugar
 1 tbsp lemon juice

Wash strawberries and lemons.


Cut green tops off of strawberries and cut strawberries into slices.


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.


Place a small saucepan on the stove over medium heat.


Add sliced strawberries, ΒΌ cup sugar and 1 tablespoon lemon juice to the pan.


Bring mixture to a rolling boil. Stir frequently with a wooden spoon and mash the strawberries slightly with a potato masher.


Turn the heat down to medium low and simmer for 10 minutes.


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.


Transfer jam to clean glass jars and cool. Refrigerate after completely cooled.
