Homemade Strawberry Jam Recipe
- 500 gr. of sugar
- 1 kilo of strawberries
- The juice of half a lemon
Wash the strawberries, remove the green leaves and cut them.
Put all the strawberries, sugar and lemon in a bowl and simmer for an hour.
You have to be stirring from time to time until the strawberries have been undone. When this has happened, remove the saucepan from the heat and let it cool.
If you do not like the jam to have the occasional straw tripping, you can crush it a bit.
Now it's time the moment of packaging (this step is important if you want the jam to last for months).
To pack the strawberry jam we have to put it in a glass jar and sterilize it in a water bath. How? Well, very easy The water bath is a method of cooking, what you have to do is take a saucepan or pan that is deep and put water, how much? it will depend on how high your jam jar is. Put it tightly closed in the pan with water and see that the liquid does NOT cover the pot. Ideally, the water is below the lid of the jam jar.
Boil, and when boiling put the jam for 20-30 minutes. After that time remove it from the water and let cool.
Incredible but true, you just made a homemade strawberry jam! Now surely you value more to eat toast with butter and jam.
Remember that while the jar is sealed the strawberry jam will last for months.
