I love a super easy recipe, that turns out “great” on the first try. For me the best parts were it only required three ingredients, I already had everything I needed and did I mention it was quick and easy.
So here’s all you will need:
(1) 12 oz. Bag of Frozen Strawberries
1/2 Cup of sugar
1 Tbs of lemon juice or 1/2 tsp citric acid
Make sure your strawberries are completely defrosted.( I used frozen strawberries for a few reasons. It’s what I had on hand and I needed to see if the recipe would work with frozen…..so that when fresh strawberries are out of season I can still make this for my daughter, since strawberry jam is her favorite.)
In a pot on medium-high heat add your strawberries and sugar. Stir to combine. Bring the mixture to a boil, mashing the strawberries as you stir. This should take about 5 minutes.
Remove from the heat add the lemon juice and stir to incorporate.
Now use your immersion blender if you would like a less chunky jam. (You can also use a food processor or blender.) Once you have the desired texture. Transfer into a jar with a lid and let cool to room temperature.
Once cooled, store in the refrigerator for up to 10 days. (You can also place in a freezer bag and freeze if you desire.)
This recipe makes 1 1/4 Cups of Strawberry Jam.
Enjoy & Until Next Time,
