Strawberry Jam Recipe

This strawberry jam recipe takes only about half an hour to cook. Make a large batch – you may double – or halve – the recipe. Use sterile bottles and keep in the refrigerator for months to enjoy on rolls, scones, cakes, swiss roll filling. You can also put a pretty polka-dot lid or piece of cloth over the lid and present it as a gift.
