Leftover Strawberry Jam


When summer gets here and there is an abundance of amazing fresh berries around its hard not to get carried away and buy more than you actually need, but that sometimes does happen and there is a box that passes its super fresh and tasty days that you don't really want to eat. I hate waste, so I had to find a way to use up our forgotten box of strawberries and jam seemed like the best way. I found this very easy recipe online and it turned out really well.


It may not be made the same way as proper jam but it doesn't take more than 25 minutes to prepare and cook and then all that is left to do is cool and store. The recipe is super simple there are only two ingredients -sugar and strawberries, but I'm sure you could do this with your favourite berry if strawberry isn't your thing. The recipe calls for you to leave it boiling for 8 minutes and this will give you a soft set jam, I prefer a slightly firmer set so I let it boil for 12 minutes, but be careful not to let it burn. I am so impressed with the results from such a simple recipe and I will definitely be using it again, maybe even try some variations for Christmas presents this year.

Tea and scones anyone...?

    1. It just wouldn't be summer with jam and scones hehe. I think if you make jam the "proper" way it takes much longer and is a little more complicated, this is super simple though :)
