Best served with scones and cream, this recipe makes around 1.5 kg of jam. Great in strawberry season.
For the best results when making jam, don't wash the strawberries unless absolutely necessary. Instead, brush off any dirt, or wipe the strawberries with a damp cloth. If you have to wash any, pat them dry and then spread them out on a clean dish towel to dry further.
Wash them in hot soapy water, then rinse thoroughly and drain. Place the jars on a baking sheet to and dry in a warm oven for 10-15 minutes.
We went strawberry picking today, and I immediately thought that I should make some jam with all the strawberries. So I made this and it came out absolutely delicious. I went ahead and added some pectin to the jam to help it gel better (6 tablespoons worth). I also suggest adding a little bit more sugar (1 cup more), but otherwise it's great! - 31 May 2013
