    This is by far the easiest recipe I have found for strawberry jam without using pectin. The jam is soft, spreadable and delicious. I recommend using organic strawberries.

    Ingredients
    Makes: 3 (450g) jars strawberry jam

    • 900g (2 lb) fresh strawberries, hulled
    • 800g (1 3/4 lb) caster sugar
    • 4 tablespoons lemon juice

    Method
    Prep:20min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:40min 

    1. In a heavy bottomed saucepan, crush the strawberries with a potato masher.
    2. Add sugar and lemon juice. Stir over low heat until the sugar is dissolved. Increase heat to high, and bring the mixture to a full rolling boil. Boil, stirring often, until the mixture reaches 105 C.
    3. Transfer to hot sterile jars, leaving 1cm (1/2 in) headspace, and seal. Process any unsealed jars in a water bath. If the jam is going to be eaten right away, don't bother with processing, and just refrigerate.
