Strawberry Jam (Bread Machine)
This came in my bread machine's user book. It looks so easy, I'm trying it now and thought I'd post it to share :) You can also substitute blackberries or raspberries for this jam.
- Ready In:
- If frozen, thaw completely.
- Crush berries with fork or potato masher, do NOT puree them.
- Put berries and sugar into pan of machine.
- Follow the directions for your machine for the jam cycle.
- Do NOT alter the ingredient quantities or this will NOT set right.

I would say I had done something wrong, but there is nothing to do wrong! I put the ingredients in my breadman, and started the jam cycle. I ended up with a liquid mess with chunks of strawberries floating in it. And it was so toothachingly sweet, I didn't even bother to try to save it by adding thickener.Reply
This is an recipe for very sweet, old fashioned jam. Nice if you don't have pectin in the kitchen.<br/><br/>The jam 'jelled' as it should and the recipe was very easy. Making the jam required very little attention, since the machine did all the stirring, timing, and controlled the heat. Unfortunately, it boiled over and was a real mess to clean up in a machine that can't be immersed in water. <br/> <br/>My bread machine makes a one-and-a-half pound loaf. Maybe there are machines with more capacity that could handle the boiling up without getting the inside of the machine all sticky . . . or bread machines that are easier to clean than mine. Next time I'll make jam in an enameled cast iron pot on very low heat, or with an automatic stirrer.Reply
