DIRECTIONS

  • Combine the sliced strawberries and sugar in a medium pot.
  • Let sit cold for about 15 minutes, stirring once or twice.
  • Add the lemon juice and zest.
  • Bring to a boil, drop to a medium simmer and cook uncovered for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • After the first 15 minutes of cooking, mash with a potato masher and drop to a low simmer.
  • Cook for an additional 10 minutes, stirring frequently and keeping an eye on them so they do not brown or stick.
  • I am making this sound harder than it is but cook tops vary so and I don't want you to have burned jam --.
  • Remove from heat and let cool for about 20 minutes.
  • Put in a little jar and continue to cool until room temperature.
  • Place in the fridge overnight to let it set up.
  • I'm not an expert but I do feel safe saying it keeps for 2 weeks in the fridge.
  • Enjoy!
