● 1 kg ripe strawberries
● 800 g sugar
● juice of 1 lemon
Wash the strawberries well and cut off the stems.
Put the strawberries in a pot and mash them by hand.
Pour the sugar over the strawberries and leave aside for 1 hour for the sugar to dissolve and for the strawberries to release their juices.
After 1 hour, put the pot on medium heat and if necessary, remove any foam from the surface using a spoon.
Increase the heat and boil for about 25 minutes until the jam has thickened. Stir frequently with a wooden spoon.
Once the jam has reached the desired consistency, add the lemon juice and turn off the heat.
Our jam is now ready and should be stored in sterilized jars.
To see if the jam has the desired consistency, put some on a saucer and allow to cool.
Once it has cooled tilt the plate slightly and if it is not runny, the jam is ready.
