Homemade Strawberry Jam
Written by Jayashree
Published on February 16, 2018

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 week  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.

Method:

  1. Keep three plates in the freezer.
  2. Wash the jar and keep it aside to dry. It is essential the jar is clean.
  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.

    I love making jam at home. I never thought of freezing strawberries. I should as sometimes when I need them for smoothies, compote, etc I don’t get them.

    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.
