Strawberry jam

Celebrating our National Day ~19th May Youth and Sports DAY!!

  • 700 gr sugar
  • 1/2 kg strawberry(hulled)
  • 1/2 lemon juice
  • Wash and remove the greenery from strawberries. Put them into a large heavy based pan. Add sugar, shake them gently to combine with strawberries and cover. Let sit overnight or at least 6 hours. In the morning, add 1/2 cup water and bring to a boil. If they left enough water, no need to add extra water. Stir gently time to time and skim any scum off the top of the surface. Let stand medium low heat not more than 30 minutes, otherwise the colour changes. Before leaving from heat, add lemon juice.   

    Pour into sterilized jars. Label and store. I never store jams in the refrigerator.
