Homemade Strawberry Jam

Serves: 1 jar

You will need

250g strawberries
200g sugar
¼ lemon


1 Layer the sugar and strawberries into a large bowl, finishing with a layer of sugar.

2 Cover and leave the bowl for one day.

3 By the following day, your berries should have reduced into lumpy sugary pink syrup.

4 Tip the mixture into a large heavy-based pan and warm to dissolve the remaining sugar. Once dissolved, bring to the boil, stirring frequently.

5 Add the lemon juice, return to the boil for 10 mins, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat.

6 After 40 minutes, the jam should be a jelly-like consistency to indicate it is ready. 

7 Allow to cool for half an hour, then pour into sterilised jars leaving 1cm from the top and seal.
