Try our delicious recipe for homemade strawberry jam.

Normally you make jam with equal parts sugar and berries, as sugar helps preserve the jam. In this recipe, we use twice as many berries as sugar. This gives the jam a richer and less sweet taste. Unfortunately, this change also reduces the shelf life. So store the jam in the fridge and eat it quickly – but that shouldn’t be a problem!

500 gram Fresh strawberries
