Easy and apparently idiot-proof strawberry jam recipe

Post  daisyhill on 4/11/2010, 2:52 am

Last year we grew strawberries in a strawberry planter. I harvested maybe 50 fruit all season.

This year we grew strawberries in a one-metre-square SFG layout, and I had more than enough to make jam. I thought jam was going to be complicated or difficult, but this recipe proved to be just perfect! The only ingredients are strawberries, sugar, and lemon juice. The instructions can be reduced to: pulp, mix, and boil the life out of it

Strawberry jam recipe from AllRecipes

Hope this makes other people as happy as it made us (and my family in Ireland who received a jar of homemade New Zealand jam as a gift Smile ). I'll definitely be using it again next summer, and I'm planting a second bed of strawberris for this very purpose!

Good for you, DaisyHill, making your own jam!

I've never tried your recipe. I usually make the strawberry freezer jam recipe that comes in the pectin box. It's easy and very quick - no boiling of the fruit. Just mash the berries, add the sugar and stir until dissolved, then boil the pectin in water for a minute and stir into the berry mixture. Pour into pint jars. It can be kept in the 'fridge a couple of weeks or several months in the freezer. It tastes like fresh strawberries because the fruit hasn't been cooked.

It's not easy to give it away as gifts, however, because it has to remain frozen until thawed for use, but my children manage to cart it away pretty easily.

My strawberries are setting fruit now. I can't wait!
