Stock up & Save In Season

Jars of pickled peppers and jam

There’s nothing better than making your own homemade jam, especially without those additives that you can’t even pronounce. You might have a garden full of apples, plums, strawberries – or you might not have anything growing, but don’t let that stop you because there’s always farmers market on or that farm shop you’ve been meaning to drop by - or be adventurous and forage those berries! 
Here is a tried and tested recipe with three simple ingredients – just make sure you make enough because they’ll disappear quickly!   
(The Simplest) Strawberry Jam Recipe 
Ripe strawberries for sweetness 
Sugar (3/4 cups of sugar per cup of berries) 
Lemon juice (2 Tbsp per cup of berries) 
1. Prepare your jars by sterilising them; wash jars and lids in hot soapy water and dry in preheated oven at 180°C for 15 minutes. 
2. Blend the strawberries (if you like a fine jam) or mash with a potato masher if you prefer chunkier jam. 
3. Combine all the ingredients in a saucepan and apply medium-to-high heat until the mixture boils. 
4. Once the mixture boils, lower the heat to medium-to-low for a further 15-20 minutes. 
5. Remove from heat and transfer to your prepared jam jars. Leave about ½ inch from the top of the jar. 
6. Leave to cool and set. 
7. Keeps for 4 weeks in the fridge and 2 months in the freezer. 
Enjoy with some freshly baked scones or simply, toast!
