KPKitchen Tools Used In This Recipe
Wash and chop the strawberries, removing the green tops.
Next, place your chopped strawberries, lemon juice and sugar in a medium sized sauce pan. Stir over medium - high heat until the mixture begins to bubble. Allow the mixture to bubble for 1 minute, stirring constantly.
Next, reduce the heat to medium and add the remaining ingredients with the our measuring spoons to the pan. Continue to boil the strawberry mixture over medium heat for 10 minutes.
After 10 minutes, reduce the heat to low and allow the jam to simmer for another 10 minutes. Stir occasionally to ensure the jam doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pan.
Remove your jam from the heat and allow to cool.
Store in the fridge.
Enjoy your homemade jam!
Tips when making your Stawberry Jam at home!
This recipe is quick and easy! Below are a few tips to help you get started.
Tip 1: If you desire a Jam that is more smooth, toss the strawberries in a food processor or blender. Blending the strawberries, rather than chopping them, will ensure the Jam isn’t chunky.
Tip 2: Your Jam will seem a little runny, this is normal. It will thicken once you remove it from the heat and it begins to cool.
Tip 3: Store your Jam in the fridge in an airtight jar or container. Use within 10 days.
Tip 4: Stir your Jam consistently while it’s being made. This will ensure yourJam doesn’t stick to the bottom on the pan.
Tip 5: This recipe cannot be canned. It does not contain Pectin and will not preserve well outside of the fridge.
Tip 6: If you're not sure if your Jam has set, use a thermometer to test the temperature. The temperature of the jam should reach 220 degrees F when set.
Tip 7: For best results, use KPKitchen’s stainless steel measuring spoons. The cups and spoons are all made out of one piece of metal so the handles will never bend or break off. They are made out of the highest quality.
And the best part of this is that our measurements are stamped right into the metal so they will never wear off. Each cup also has outside markings for a smaller measurement size that is visible on the inside. It‘s time to replace your old plastic cup & spoon measure set where the writings rub off. Our KPKitchen’s stainless steel measuring spoons are just perfect for jam.
