Strawberry Jam
Author: Allie
Prep time: 10 mins
Cook time: 45 mins
Total time: 55 mins
  • approximately 6 cups really sweet fresh strawberries (rinsed, patted dry, hulled and sliced)
  • ¼ cup honey
  • zest from 1 lemon
  • ¼ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  1. Place the strawberries in a large pot and smash with the bottom of a glass. Add the honey, lemon zest and lemon juice and heat over medium high.
  2. Boil, stirring every now and then, until the mixture thickens. This took about 45 minutes. It could take more or less time depending on your strawberries.
  3. To test, put some of the jam on a clean spoon and put the spoon on a plate in the freezer. Let it sit in there for five minutes then take it out. If the jam doesn’t fall easily off the spoon when you turn it to the side, it’s ready and you can take the pot off the heat. If it does pour off easily, continue cooking for another 5 minutes and try the test again.
  4. Let cool then pour into jars and store in the fridge and for up 1 week.
