• If you already have your strawberries, prepare a wide bowl to put and crush the fruit. It would be easier if you crush them by batches until you have about 4 cups of it.

Using heavy bottomed saucepan, mix all of the ingredients together, mashed strawberries, lemon juice and sugar.

• Start to stir the mixture over low hear. Then try to increase the heat to high once the sugar is dissolved. Then bring it into a full rolling boil. Continue to stir until the mixture reaches 105 degrees C.

• Then prepare sterile jars where you can place the finished product. Make sure to leave about quarter or half of an inch head space and tightly seal it. Refrigerate the jam before eating.
