Strawberry Jam

March 25, 2017 at 1:54 PM

Pulled this recipe from Sherri Brooks Vinton. “Put ’em Up!.” This was my first time making a “Classic Jam” where you add sugar to the fruit in question and let it macerate overnight. It starts exactly like a shrub does, but you don’t toss in any vinegar.


  • 1112g Strawberries
  • 270 g sugar
  • 57 ml lemon juice
  1. Chopped up Strawberries, added to a crock-like container, poured the sugar over and mixed by hand. Added a lid and left overnight.
  2. Next day I put the strawberries and the lemon in the pot and brought to a boil. Processed for about 20 minutes and then poured into a jar.
  3. Processed jar for about 5 minutes

Might need a little more time on the boil, the jam is somewhat runny. Or it might be amazing, I think I prefer a slightly less-gelled recipe.
