I rarely buy Jam from supermarkets considering the amount of sugar, colors and preservatives they use. Even if they claim to be organic but have a label saying they could last of months and are stocked in non refrigerating section of supermarket, it makes me skeptical. There has to be something in these jams to sit on shelves for so long without going bad.
So here is the most basic and simple recipe of strawberry jam that any beginner can make. The best thing about it is that you do not need to add any setting agent or preservatives. It will result in beautiful spreadable jam ready in 30-45 minutes. I made 2 small jars as this was my first batch. Feel free to double up the recipe if you need to.
So no white sugar or setting sugar, no butter, no preservatives make it a win win . Great for kids and adults.
