Maro’s Homemade Jam
Strawberry jam recipe - for those that prefer to know exactly what's in the food they’re eating ;)
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 🥛
