Homemade Strawberry Jam



I mentioned coworker Michael a while ago when he and his girlfriend Lindsey bought a fondue pot after eating at the Melting Pot. Michael told me how much fun he and Lindsey were having creating these wonderful fondue concoctions.

Now these two busy bodies have moved on to strawberries, more specifically strawberry jam.


Lindsey kindly shared her jam recipe, which she adapted from similar recipes on foodnetwork.com.

Strawberry jam

1lb fresh strawberries, hulled
1½ cups white sugar
2-3tbsp fresh lemon juice

Crush strawberries in a large bowl. For a smoother texture, smash the berries more; for a chunkier texture, smash them less. Add the crushed berries, sugar and lemon juice into a saucepan and cook over low heat until the sugar is dissolved. Increase heat to high, and bring the mixture to a rolling boil. Boil, stirring often, for 10 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat, and carefully pour into 16oz canning jars. This recipe yields two 16oz jars of jam.
