Strawberry Jam

It's summers and the season of strawberries !! Ever since the summer started, we have been eating fresh strawberries, having strawberry shake, smoothies, in fruit salads; everything ! So when my husband suggested we must go in for something different with strawberries, I came up with the idea of making jam and canning it. I'm not really a jam person and I don't like jams, but my husband does. So we got another batch of strawberries and I converted them to Jam !! It looked super delicious !!

These are the hulled strawberries, ready to be made into jam.

And voila! This is my strawberry jam !!!

2 cups
6 tablespoons
Lemon Juice
4 tablespoons

Wash the strawberries thoroughly and cut off the upper green part. Now, mash the strawberries completely. In a heavy bottomed pan, add the strawberries, sugar and lemon juice on low heat till the sugar dissolves. Turn up the heat to medium and bring this mixture to a rolling boil. Stir regularly otherwise it will stick to the pan and burn. Keep stirring for full 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and can it in a sterilized jar. Cap it and immerse in boiling water for 10 minutes. Remove from the water and refrigerate. The jam would be ready to eat after it cools down.
