Method

  1. In a heavy based saucepan crush the strawberries with a potato masher.

  2. Add sugar and lemon juice.

  3. Stir over low heat until the sugar is dissolved.

  4. Increase heat to high, and bring the mixture to a full rolling boil.

  5. Boil, stirring often, until the mixture reaches 105 C.

  6. Transfer to hot sterile jars, leaving 1cm headspace, and seal.

  7. Process any unsealed jars in a water bath. If the jam is going to be eaten right away, don't bother with processing, and just refrigerate.
