Kitchen Gardener - Easy Peasy Strawberry Jam
Our easy peasy strawberry jam is a fab way to use up any strawberries if you have managed to grow an abundance - or any knocking around in the fridge that are looking a bit past their prime!
You'll be needing...
Strawberries - about 1kg is ideal but just adjust the sugar and lemon juice depending on how many strawberries you've got
Sugar - about 100g
Lemon juice - couple of tablespoons should do it
Roughly chop your strawbs then chuck everything into a pan and keep stirring until everything starts to look jammy - about 8 minutes - it will be quite loose until it's cooled off so a good way to test is to plop a teaspoon onto a chilled plate and give it a swirl - if it starts to thicken and set then you're good to go.
Refrigerate it clean jars - as this isn't traditional 'jam' it won't last as long but you should get a week to ten days out of it!
