    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    Considering how easy this is to make, it makes a great strawberry jam, good on waffles, pancakes and for a cheesecake topping! It will keep in the refrigerator covered for up to 2 weeks.

    Units: US | Metric

    • 453.59 g fresh ripe strawberry, trimmed and halved (use only red ripe berries)

    • red food coloring (optional)


    1. 1

    2. 2
      In a large skillet stir together the mashed berries, sugar, pectin and lemon juice (starting with 2/3 cup sugar and adding in more desired I found that 2/3 cup plenty for me!) boil until slightly thickened about 5 minutes, add in a couple drops of red food colouring if needed.

      This is so good. My hubby really likes it too. I can't waite to give some away as gifts. I made it just as the recipe stated, and with only 2/3 cup of sugar. I think that is about right, not too sweet. I didn't have the fresh lemon juice, ( forgot to buy it).

      So easy to make & such a great tasting jam, too! Made it according to the recipe, using the 2/3 cup of sugar & must say, I probably won't be looking at store-bought strawberry jam again, not with something this easy to make! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed in Zaar Cookbook tag]
