So easy and purely simple. If you have never
made jam before than this recipe is for you! Go
ahead and try it. You can use any berry.
3 pints of strawberries
2 large lemmons, zested and juiced
2 1/2 cups sugar
Combine the sugar, lemon zest and lemon juice in
a small saucepan and cook over very low heat for
10 minutes, until the sugar is dissolved. Add the
strawberries and continue to cook over very low
heat for 20 minutes, until the strawberries release
some of their juices and the mixture boils slowly.
Mash slightly. Pour carefully into canning jars and
either seal or keep refrigerated. I gave them a water
bath but if you are going to use right away you don't
need to. Now go toast a bagel and put a little butter
and fresh jam on it. Enjoy!
