Strawberry Jam

Here's a quick and easy recipe for fresh strawberry jam that I hope you'll make over and over again. It only takes about 15 minutes and I think the flavor is just incomparable to the jarred stuff, but you be the judge. And, unlike the jarred stuff, you'll know exactly what's going in it: just strawberries, sugar, and lemon juice. Serve these with your favorite scones, croissants, or just some plain toast in the morning.

Since this isn't a sterilized product, it is probably a good idea to treat it like any other perishable food product, however. Refrigerate any unused portion and consume within a few days. Enjoy!

Disclaimer: I did not make the croissant.

In a small saucepot, combine the strawberries and sugar and cook over medium heat until the sugar has melted and the strawberries have mostly dissolved, about 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and let cool for about 5 minutes. Stir in the lemon juice and serve immediately or refrigerate.


Note: For easy cleanup, fill the empty saucepot with water and bring to a boil over high heat for 10-15 minutes to dissolve any hard sugar residue.
