homemade strawberry jam

Would you believe how easy it is to make strawberry jam.Once you start making jam at home,say goodbye to store bought jam. The best part about this jam is we know exactly what went into it and no preservatives. Of course all good things have a drawback, this jam has a shelf life of 1month(in the fridge). Thats why I make it in small quantities. This jar of jam will get over within two weeks in my house coz my daughter loves it.

Ingredients for strawberry jam
200grms fresh strawberries
1/2 tbsp lemon juice

* wash strawberries and dry them completely, grind them coarsely in a mixer or  food processor.
* pour the strawberries into a saucepan, mix in lemon juice and sugar(add more sugar if you want it to be sweet)
* on medium high flame cook the strawberries, when it comes to a boil,reduce the flame to medium and cook until there is no more white bubbly  froth in the strawberry mixture(about 10 minutes)
* let the jam cool a little then pour it into a very clean and dry jar.
Let the jam cool completely before you cover it and place it in the fridge.
* this jam can be kept in the fridge for up to a month
(important: jar should be very clean and dry)
