Now that strawberries are in season and very cheap, this is an ideal time to buy them and make your own jam.
Home made jam also makes wonderful gifts with Christmas drawing near.
They last for ages (I still have one that is a year old) and are generally not as sweet as shop bought ones, as I add a bit of lemon juice.
This one is easy to make, and using the special sugar makes it failproof.
