Strawberry  Jam

step-by-step recipe

What makes this jam the best?

It's fun to make, and so much tastier to whip up a jar of jam yourself than using store-bought.


– fresh strawberries  – granulated sugar  – vanilla bean – citric acid

Step 1

Wash strawberries. Chop smaller into fourths, and larger berries into eighths.

Step 2

Wash glass jars. Keep the jars in a warm place. In a large pan over medium heat, combine the chopped strawberries with sugar.

Step 3

Split the vanilla bean lengthwise and scrape out the seeds. Add both to the strawberry mixture. Whisk and let it simmer for 40-60 minutes.

Step 4

Add citric acid. Fill the warmed jars and Keep them in a dry place at room temperature for up to a year.
