Homemade Strawberry Jam

Homemade strawberry jam special for my son. Since I found out making strawberry jam is quite easy, I decided make it on my own. All you need is a saucepan, sugar, canning jar and of course strawberries..!! No preservatives included in my homemade strawberry jam.

Homemade Strawberry Jam

Ingredients :

- 500 gr strawberries, rinse and chop off the leaves. Cut in halves or quarters.
- 350 gr granulated sugar
- 80 ml water
- 1 tablespoon of lemon juice.

How to :

1. Put strawberries into a large bowl. Stir in sugar and lemon juice then let stand for 10 minutes.
2. In a small saucepan, bring water to a boil, stirring constantly. Let the mixture boil for one minute while continuing to stir.
3. Add half of strawberry mixture into the boiled water in medium heat. Stir until all sugar is dissolved (about 3 minutes). Add the remaining strawberries to this mixture. stirring frequently.
4. Once syrup comes to a boil, stir and watch. It will move from what looks like, deep-garnet mass of thick, glossy bubbles.
5. Dip a metal spoon into the syrup and let syrup drip off the side of the spoon. It's ready when the last few drops are fairly thick and sticky.
6. Turn off the heat.
