Strawberry Jam

My son Cooper has been asking to make Strawberry Jam for soooooooo long now, so today he made me promise him that we would make it today. So that was it, l had made a promise to a four year old there was no backing out now!

Whilst trying to find a recipe l couldn't believe how much sugar some of the recipes called for, there was no way l was going to use 5 cups of sugar to 1 kg of strawberries. So after a little more hunting l found a recipe that only needed 1 1/2 Cups, even then l only put 1 cup in.

The recipe is a long process, but so it seems to be worth it. I am only up to Stage 2 so l'll let you know how l go tomorrow, but so far it smells and looks delicious!



  1. I was wishing I had some homemade strawberry jam with our biscuits the other day! Sounds yummy and the less sugar the better!

  2. Kristen, this recipe is so delicious l highly recommend giving it a try!
