You'll only need three ingredients for this super simple Classic Strawberry Jam recipe. I like my jam nice and thick with chunks of strawberry but if you prefer it smoother, just chop finely or puree the strawberries before cooking


500 grams strawberries, washed and hulled
¾ cup sugar, preferably jam setting sugar
2 Tbs lemon juice


1. Sterilise 1x 500ml jar. Roughly chop strawberries.
2. Place all ingredients into a sauce pan over medium-low heat. Stir until sugar has dissolved.
3. Once the sugar is completely dissolved, raise the heat to high and boil, stirring often until reaches setting point around 102 ºC.

4. Remove from heat and skim off any foam. Ladle hot jam into sterilised jars leaving headspace. Wipe any spillage before securing seals and bands, allow jars to cool. Store in a cool dark place.
