Strawberry Jam Recipe


Strawberry Jam

1 lb fresh strawberries
1 cup sugar or to taste
1 lemon (extract the juice)


Cut and then crush strawberries. Set aside.

Heat up a saucepan and add the strawberries, sugar, and lemon juice. Stir over medium heat until the strawberries are cooked and become a watery jam-like consistency. Lower the heat to reduce the liquid in the jam until it reaches the desired consistency. Turn off the heat and let cool, then transfer into the jar(s) and keep in the fridge.

    I’m with you! I’m not a big American breakfast person either…having that kind of food doesn’t sit well with me in the morning. When we moved to Japan, I fell in love with having rice, fish, miso soup, etc. for breakfast, and still tend to eat along those lines here in the US.

      • I have to believe that even most North Americans aren’t really big on the “American” breakfast! I was born in Canada, and bacon, eggs, and most other “breakfast” foods (except toast and granola, I suppose, since they’re pretty easy in the morning) are kept for a few special occasions during the year.

        No choices but bacon and eggs every day was one of the nightmares of university residence breakfasts.

  4. Such luscious pictures! There are still a *few* strawberries in our farmer’s market in New York; I’m tempted to follow your lead and make a little jam.

    Looks too good! Very enticing!

    And it’s okay that you skip breakfast… I sometimes do it too! I think we both need to nag each other about eating breakfast. :)

    Oh, if we were neighbors… I’d exchange freshly baked New York-Style bagels for a couple jars of your jam. I’ve got some jam that I made a couple weeks ago, but for some reason it’s disappearing rather quickly…

    Great post Bee! :)

    When I was in Sydney, they were selling very, very cheap strawberries, I bought 2 kg for only A$2 only. So I made them in jam. I saw a Taiwan TV program taught us to add in 2 green apple, just peel the skin and dice, must add in all even the seeds. I added sugar too and made the best strawberry jam !!
    I wonder why you add in lemon juice ? Thanks.
