Expert Tips

  • Strawberries Selection: Choose ripe but firm strawberries for jam-making, as overly ripe ones may result in a too-soft consistency, while underripe berries can lack flavor.
  • Granulated Sugar: Adjust sugar according to the sweetness of your fruit. If your strawberries and oranges are very sweet, you might want to reduce the amount slightly to avoid an overly sweet jam.

Variations

  • Fresh Lemon Juice: By combining sugar and lemon juice with strawberries, the lemon juice not only enhances the fruit’s flavor but also helps in achieving the desired jam consistency.
  • Frozen Strawberries: Using frozen strawberries instead of fresh strawberries, allows you to enjoy homemade jam year-round without waiting for berry season. Frozen berries also saves time as the berries are pre-cleaned and hulled.

Variation

  • Strawberry Freezer Jam: Skips cooking for a fresher taste and is stored in the freezer, unlike cooked, canned traditional jam.

Storage & Reheating Instructions

  • Refrigeration: Always store strawberry jam in the fridge to prevent spoilage. Make sure the container is securely sealed to preserve both the texture and flavor. Before use, check for any signs of spoilage or unusual odors
  • Freezing: For extended storage, freeze strawberry jam, labeling containers with the date for freshness tracking. Frozen jam can last several months, providing a delightful homemade spread when needed.

What To Serve With This Recipe?

  • English Muffins: Spread strawberry jam on warm toast or English muffins for a classic and simple breakfast or snack.
  •  Pancakes or Waffles: Strawberry jam adds a sweet and fruity element to pancakes or waffles. You can also layer it between the layers of a stacked pancake or waffle tower.
