Let me tell you a secret my friends. I l-o-v-e strawberry jam. Exciting right? Honey and Nutella are all very good as well, but for the ultimate Saturday morning brunch for example I just need my strawberry jam. You can imagine how happy I was that you could make your own super-easily, which both tastes better AND is cheaper. This one is a little variation on the classic strawberry jam since we didn’t have enough strawberries anymore. So we added a little freshly squeezed orange juice and it tasted surprisingly good!
Oh and by the way, they are perfect with last week’s fresh buns! Here’s the recipe:
Ingredients: 500 g canning sugar (I prefer the 2 parts fruit, one part sugar kind), 700 g strawberries (we mostly use frozen ones because they are a little cheaper and you won’t taste a difference, just make sure they aren’t sweetened already), 300 g fresh orange juice.
Let the fruit defrost a little bit. Bring everything to a simmer on the stove and mash the strawberries to your liking. Let it cook for a few minutes. Immediately fill the jam into jars, close them tightly and put them botton up for five minutes. After that you can turn them over again and enjoy your fresh jam!
