Maro’s Homemade Jam

Strawberry jam recipe - for those that prefer to know exactly what's in the food they’re eating ;) 
Organic jelly raspberry strawberry
Let’s make some homemade jam ! 
  • Pick your fruit - Some take longer to cook than others. I used raspberries, and strawberries. Blueberries are also a good option but they take over an hour to cook!
  • I like to use fresh, unfrozen, organic fruits. (shorter cooking time/ healthier choice)
  • Get your jars, cleaned, sterilized and ready!  This is important because you don't want bacteria growing on your Jelly- remember we aren't using preservatives!
  • Put 2 pounds of cut up fruit, in a medium sized deep sauce pan until it starts to bubble and then reduce to simmer.

  • Add 4 cups of raw sugar and 1/4 cup organic lemon juice in the pan.  Stir until everything is dissolved.
  • Increase the heat to high, until it comes to a boil and stir often!
  • This is going to take a little while,(about 40 minutes depending on the fruit you pick) so grab a book or turn on your favorite TV Series, but make sure you stir every 20 minutes until the consistency is the way you like it!
  • Mash it all up (or keep the chunks of Fruit) and pour into the Jars, and then store it in the fridge! (This will make about 5 cups of Jam).
  • Serve over organic peanut butter on your favorite toast and enjoy with a cup of oat milk 🥛
