Preserve the flavour of luscious English summer strawberries with this simple recipe for jam.
Makes: about 1.5kg jam (about 4-5 x 340g jars)
Choose slightly under-ripe fruit if possible, as it contains more pectin which helps to set the jam.
When washing strawberries, remove the stalks and hulls afterwards to prevent water entering the fruit, making it soggy. Use a jug to pour the jam into the jars more easily.
Jam sugar is used as it produces a clearer jam, a better set and less scum than granulated sugar.
Typical values per serving:
Per teaspoon of jam
