Recipe for a chunky and sweet strawberry jam.


  1. Chop strawberries into around 1cm bits.
  2. Put strawberries in a pot and stir for at least 10 minutes.
  3. Next add ALL sugar and lemon juice and stir for around 2 minutes, and then leave it to boil for around 15 minutes.
  4. After that it should generally be ready, pour into a jar or anything, really and leave the lid off to cool the jam, at this time it will be very hot.
  5. Leave the jam to cool for at least 15-30 minutes and then it will be ready.
  6. (NOTE: This is not a thick jam. It should still have chunks of strawberries in it).

Very good jam. I admit that I didn't use your measurements (I just had a few berries), but I based my recipe off of them. So thanks!

very good jam, I used strawberries an blackberries that I needed to use before they went bad so good. I halfed the sugar, personal preference and it was delightful.

I had a bag of frozen strawberries that needed using up. Because there is no weight description in the recipe, I had to play by ear. After chopping them up, I got 300gms and used about 60gms of sugar and no lemon juice as I thought it was sour as it was. It turned about pretty okay. I will try it again and post a revised review then.
