  • 600 g strawberries (fresh)
  • 400 g sugar (Jam sugar)
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice (fresh)


  • Mix the strawberries, sugar, and lemon juice in a pan.
  • Stir until the sugar melts.
  • Turn on the stove's heat to boil the mixture.
  • Then, mix the jam with a spatula.
  • Once happy with the consistency, remove it from the heat.



  • You can freeze the jam to last up to 1 year.
  • Babies can have strawberry jam as early as 12 months old.
  • Purchase quality ingredients for the best strawberry jam ever!
  • You can allow the juices to be released for an hour or overnight.
  • The sugar can help make the strawberry jam thick in consistency, but if you want to add thickness to the jam, you may incorporate a few tablespoons of cornstarch dissolved in water. Mix it into the jam while cooking.
  • In case you don’t have access to a pan or stove, you can still make strawberry jam with strawberries, sugar, lemon juice, and instant pectin.
  • Thaw the frozen strawberry jam in the fridge overnight, and once thawed, consume it within 1 week and do not re-freeze.
