Microwave Berry Jam
photo by Tinkerbell
- Ready In:
- 2 cups berries, sliced if large
- 1⁄3 - 1⁄2 cup sugar, to taste
- 1⁄8 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
- 1) Combine all of the ingredients in a large microwave-safe bowl. Make sure the bowl is large enough; the berries/sugar shouldn't fill more than 1/3 of the bowl, as they'll bubble up quite a bit as they cook.
- 2) Cook the berries for 5 minutes in the microwave.
- 3) Remove the bowl from the microwave, stir the berries, and cook for another 5 minutes.
- 4) Remove the bowl from the microwave, and stir thoroughly. If the mixture hasn't become sauce-like and slightly syrupy, cook for an additional 5 minutes.
- 5) Stir to combine any liquid, and refrigerate. The jam will thicken as it cools.

Delicious strawberry jam! This recipe is super easy, but I've just got to add another warning about using a big bowl. I used a 6-inch wide bowl that is about 4 inches deep. That was definitely not enough. Before I knew it there was strawberry syrup everywhere in the microwave. It smells delish, but was a huge mess. LOL I couldn't cook for more than 45 seconds before it overflowed, so I cut the power down to 50% and then cooked it a little bit longer each time. I will definitely be making this again. It is delicious on pancakes, toast and today we used it for Pammy's recipe #504210. Made and enjoyed for the Cookathon in Pammy's memory.
