Strawberry Jam

What a perfect way to use up the seasonal fruits than Jam.. It is a great idea to make jams from fresh fruit and you can store these jams (canned) throughout the year.. Winter comes and it is strawberry everywhere... They look so pretty with a very beautiful contrast of Dark Pink color with the very fresh green leaves. You want to grab them all from the store, but then how do you use them up without going waste!!! The answer is jam. Some rules about Jam that I follow in my house are - 1. Canning should be done for Jam if it is more than 200 grams quantity. 2. All Jam jars should be labeled about contents, date of preparation. 3. Only clean and moist free spoon should be used to scoop the jam. 4. No artificial colors or preservatives to be added. 5. Spoon that touches bread or anything else will not re enter the jam for another scoop. Use a fresh spoon. This jam is very tasty and has a great flavor and aroma of strawberry. It is also very easy to make. My choice for S - Others / Miscellaneous

Strawberry – 500 grams

MethodCut the strawberry into quarters and set aside
Heat Strawberry, lemon juice and Pectin in a pan
Cook until the strawberry are soft and while cooking, press with the potato masher to make it into very small pieces.
Ensure that strawberry is not a puree as jam should have chunks of fruit in it.
Once the strawberries are well done, add sugar and stir well
Cook this mixture until it is in a rolling boil for 2 minutes. Rolling boil means – a boil which does not go away even after stirring heavily.
This took around 20 minutes total cooking from when we started the strawberry on stove.
Remove the jam and transfer them to a clean and sterilized jars.
