Quick Strawberry Jam - A Recipe
SO FIRST UP - sterilise your jars. I did this my putting them in a pot of boiling water and then, using tongs, I put them in the oven to dry. Meanwhile I got started on making my jam.
Start by putting the seeds of a vanilla pod, 300 grams of sugar and about 400 grams of strawberries into a bowl.
Lightly mush with a whisk until your mixture looks something like this...
Add lemon juice and transfer to the stove, leave it on for about five minutes whilst mashing it to make the chunks a bit smaller (I used a potato masher).
I then used my 'jam' to make butterfly cakes - which I highly recommend.
Happy jam making,
