  • 250 grams strawberries (hulled and roughly chopped)
  • 1/4 lemon
  • 1 cup jam setting sugar
  • 1/2 cup water


  • Sterilise one medium jar (you can use the dishwasher and then allow to air dry if it's still a little wet.)
  • Place your strawberries (hulled and roughly chopped) into a medium saucepan (strawberries should be half the volume of the saucepan or less).
  • Add peeled, seeded and chopped lemon.
  • Add water and sugar.
  • Bring to the boil, stirring every now and then.
  • Adjust so the mixture is boiling at a medium pace, not furiously and not gently.
  • Allow to boil for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Take off the heat and rest for a couple of minutes. Mash with a potato masher if the jam is too lumpy for your liking.
  • Pour into the jar and seal with a lid.
  • Store jam in fridge.
