Homemade (& Simple) Strawberry Jam

23 Sep

Nothing is more personal than a homemade treat, made with love. Why not make up some strawberry jam this weekend?

What you will need:

  • 1/8 cup of fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 pound of strawberries
  • 1 Tb. of Pomona’s pectin
  • Of course your jars of choice

Begin by pouring the strawberries into a bowl and mashing them with a fork.

Then pour lemon juice, mashed berries and sugar into a large pot, set on medium and heat to a rolling boil.

On a separate burner, boil 3/4 cups of water and add 1 Tb. of pectin and stir until even.

Pour pectin-water into the pot with other ingredients and stir.

Let jam cool before scooping it into jars of your choice and then you can decorate the jars any way you want!
