notes:

  • firstly, finely chop the strawberries or blend to puree to reduce the cooking time. however i prefer few chunks of strawberries in my jam.
  • additionally, strawberry can be substituted with any berries like raspberries or blackberries to make jam.
  • further the jam stays good for a month or more when refrigerated.
  • also, to store for longer time, transfer the jam into hot sterile jars, leaving 1 cm headspace and seal jar in a water bath.
  • finally, keep stirring homemade low sugar strawberry jam else it might burn from bottom.
