Homemade Strawberry Jam


Wow! I never knew that making your own homemade jam could be this easy! The ingredients are simple and they tasted even better than the one I bought over the supermarket.

A friend of mine gave me a package of strawberry from Cameron Highland. I kept them in the refrigerator for a couple days and it turned a bit mushy from overripe. I decided to make them into jam. I have not attempt to make any jam before, but the recipe looks very easy. I decided to give it a try. 
Homemade Strawberry Jam

200g strawberries
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • Cut strawberries into half and put it in a bowl. Mash strawberries until half coarse.
  • Transfer to a large skillet and stir in sugar and lemon juice.
  • Cook over medium-high, stirring frequently. Bring the mixture to a full rolling boil or until jam is thickened and bubbles completely cover surface.
  • Transfer jam to a jar and let cool to room temperature.
  • To store, transfer jam to hot sterile jars. Seal jar and refrigerate.
