DIRECTIONS

  • Hull the strawberries and wipe with some damp kitchen paper.
  • Layer the strawberries in the pan and sprinkle them with the sugar as you go.
  • Leave them like this overnight, reason for it is that the sugar will draw out the juices, firm the fruit and they will stay more whole in the jam.
  • When you make the jam place the pan over low heat to melt the rest of the sugar, shake the pan now and then, don't stir too much.
  • When the sugar is dissolved add the lemon juice and turn up the heat, when the jam bubbles start timing, begin with 8 minutes and then remove from the heat.
  • Spoon a little jam on a plate, let cool, then push with your finger, if you get a crinkly skin it is set.
  • If not, boil it up again for another 3-5 minutes and do the test again, if necessary do more repeats.
  • When ready remove from the heat, stir in the butter to dissolve the scum and let the jam settle for 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Pour the jam in dry clean jars which are heated in the oven for 5 minutes (325F) Cover with waxed discs and seal with lids or cellophane.
  • Label the jars when they are cold.
