Strawberry Jam Recipe
Home-made strawberry jam recipe that anyone can make at home. This strawberry jam is cheaper and much better than the bottled strawberry jam in stores.
1 lb fresh strawberries
1 cup sugar or to taste
1 lemon (extract the juice)
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 am not much a breakfast person, I mean, I love breakfast, but growing up in Malaysia, breakfast means nasi lemak, prawn noodles, mee siam, or other street food. Even though I have been in the US for almost 15 years, I haven’t quite acquired the habit of having cereal, bacon, or scrambled eggs for breakfast. So, I often skip breakfast, which is totally not healthy for me.
Recently, I have started to incorporate healthy breakfast into my daily routine—milk, toast, muffins, and fresh fruits. I even made some French toast. Yesterday, LK got me a box of fresh and sweet strawberries and I made some of them into this beautiful and tasty strawberry jam.
Making strawberry jam is really quite easy and you need only a few ingredients, but the end result is so much better than the bottled ones you get at stores. Everything is just better when you make it from scratch.
