Home made jams are tasty and have no added preservative. With strawberries around, I wanted to make jam since a long time. The time did come at last, last weekΒ  for my Homemade Strawberry Jam.

My weekly fruits are purchased on Sunday, thus the whole lot of fruits I separate, wash and keep them in the refrigerator. My sonny boy is not here these days and no one really eats this fruit. It is used as topping for desserts, thus I wash, dry and deep freeze them and use accordingly.

Thus, the strawberries used here are frozen ones. I made the pulp, added sugar and kept aside for a couple hours.

The benefits of strawberries I did write in my earlier post.

  1. Keep three plates in the freezer.

  3. Make puree of the frozen strawberry, add sugar and keep it aside for 3-4 hours. If you are using fresh strawberry, cut them, add sugar and keep it aside. Make the pulp later.
  4. Put the pulp in a pan and set it to boil. Keep stirring. In ten minutes it will be done. Add the lime juice and give a stir.
  5. To check if it is done, take a plate from the freezer and put a drop of it. If it spreads, you need to cook it for some more time.

  5. thats great. This recipe will save my money which I spend on buying jam. Strawberry jam looking so perfect. step by step clicks are giving a better view.

  6. I love to make jam at home and try and take advantage of seasonal fruits. Strawberry jam is one of my families favorite and we too love it exactly like yours with chunky pieces in it. I think the tricky bit is getting the consistency right for setting, but the drop test on a plate is a really useful one.

  7. This easy and quick recipe of strawberry is really great. Going to try this with other fruits as well. Thanks for sharing.
