Strawberry jam is a great option to use up a batch of strawberries and keep eating throughout the rest of the year.
All you do is mash the strawberries, add sugar, lemon juice, vanilla and pectin. No cooking required!
This basic strawberry jam recipe uses strawberries, lemon juice, sugar and balsamic vinegar, simmered together for an hour. Nothing beats homemade jam.
For this recipe I have taken a traditional strawberry jam recipe and added rosewater to give it a lovely fragrance and taste. This jam is delicious served with fresh scones and whipped cream or spread on toasted Turkish bread with lashings of butter!
