Snitterfield Strawberry Jam

Easy to make, any fruit can be used for this simple jam recipe.

Fruit

Same quantity of Sugar

Lemon Juice

Simply heat the fruit and sugar together in a saucepan over a moderate flame.  I like chunky fruit pieces in my jam, so I cut my fruits chunky, sometimes with berries there is no need to cut them at all.

Once fruit has broken down, reduce heat and add the juice of half a lemon.  Lemon is naturally high in pectin, an enzyme which serves as a gelling agent.

Once mixture has darkened and reduced, test to see if ready by dropping a dollop of onto a plate. Run your finger through it, if mixture wrinkles where pushed jam is ready! If not continue to heat for longer.

Pour jam into a sterilised jar, then cover immediately.

I love to eat homemade jam on sourdough bread, its savoury quality marrys perfectly with the sweetness of the jam.
