1Get the Ingredients

  • 2kg Strawberries
  • 2lg Preserving Sugar
  • Juices of 13 Lemons

2Hull the Strawberries

Hull the strawberries and place them in a non-reactive bowl (stainless steel, china or glass). Sprinkle over the sugar and lemon juice. Leave in the fridge overnight.

3Chill then Heat

Put a small plate in the fridge to chill. Tip the contents of the bowl into a large, heavy-bottomed pan and heat gently until all the sugar has dissolved. Turn up the heat and boil vigorously for 5 minutes.

4See if Jam Starts Setting

Turn off the heat and test for setting point. If jam is not setting, bring it back to the boil for 2 minutes and retest.

5Cool and Skim

Once setting point has been reached, allow to cool for 5 minutes, then skim off any scum.

6Jar and Seal

After a further 10 minutes, put the jam into sterilized jars.

Finally, Enjoy your jam!
