Strawberries are in season now so the best thing is to make fresh strawberry jam at home. Believe me, homemade jams are much better and you can’t buy that flavor from stores. If pectin is not available then you can add one packet of strawberry jelly in it.
Ingredients Of Strawberry Jam
- 5 cups fresh ripe strawberries
- 3 tbsp pectin
- 3 cup sugar
- 3 tbsp lemon juice
Method Of Strawberry Jam
- Mash the strawberries with the potato masher or with the spoon. If you like strawberry chunks in your jam than just roughly mash it. Bring mashed strawberries and sugar to a boil over high heat.
- Add pectin and lemon juice in it. Skim the foam which is now formed on the surface with a spoon. Take a jam in a spoon, let it cool to room temperature, if it’s still thin then you can add more pectin.
- Sterilize the jars and their lids too. Now dry their moisture in the oven. Put the jams in the jar and seal them.
Tip: Pectin is a gelling agent. It is used in jellies and jams. You can find it in big stores.
