Strawberry Jam

A perfect homemade spread for the toast

Ingredients - Yields a cup

  • Hulled strawberry - 1 cup
  • Sugar - 1/2 cup
  • Lemon juice - 1 tbsp
  • Blend the strawberry in the blender or mixer (smooth )
  • Heat the pan add blended strawberry, sugar and lemon juice
  • Mix well, cook in a medium  high heat until the mixture comes to boil
  • Now reduce the heat to medium and cook for approximately 15 to 20 minutes or until  the white bubbles disappear
  • Allow it to cool and store in a clear jar

Tip - I usually make jam in small batches and use it over 10 days. If your are making in a large batch, refrigerate it for longer shelf life
