Snitterfield Strawberry Jam

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


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.
