Homemade Strawberry Jam

What should you do when drowning in strawberries? Make jam. Lots and lots of jam. Despite my husband’s heroic efforts to work his way through the kilos of strawberries I have harvested, there were tons leftover. Whilst giving strawberries to the chickens would undoubtedly result in their undying love for me, it wouldn’t be good for them!

I cut up half a kilo of strawberries, added a splash of lemon juice and heated it slowly. Once the strawberries began to cook, I added a terrifying amount of sugar. The boiling jam smelled amazing and even with the added complication of a broken water main (which meant no water in the house for half the day!), I am rather pleased with the end result.

The most difficult part is waiting for it to cool before sampling it…
