At this time of year, roadside stalls are piled high with strawberries. I always ask for jam berries. They're cheaper as they may be a little squishy or imperfect but they're ideal for jam. There's nothing quite like the taste of homemade jams like this and they take just a matter of minutes to make.
|2 cups||Strawberries, coarsely crushed (Main)|
|1 Tbsp||Lemon juice|

Mix berries with sugar and allow to stand for 3-4 hours in a non-corrosive container. Boil hard with the lemon juice for about 5 minutes or until jam starts to set. Pour into sterilised jars and seal with sterilised pop-top lids.
