Strawberry Jam.

I made a super easy homemade jam. We went strawberry picking so we had so many. This made enough to fit in a large mason jar. My guess is two full cups worth.

What you’ll need:

-4 cups of strawberries

-2 cups of granulated sugar

-Juice of one lemon

Place a small plate in the freezer.

Set burner to medium. Add all the ingredients to a large saucepan. Cook until it begins to boil. As it boils skim the white foam off the top and discard. I cooked it down for about 15-20 minutes.

To test if it’s done, take the cold plate out of the freezer and place a scoop of the jam on it. If it slides down it still needs to cook. If it sticks, it’s done.

Turn burner off and let cool for a minute. Pour into a large mason jar. Let it sit out for a bit. Refrigerate and use within two weeks.

Happy Summer,

Annie XOXO
