Crushed Strawberry Jam

Crushed Strawberry Jam

Since the strawberries are crushed, when you spread the jam on toast or sandwiches, it won't seep out! It's a very practical jam!

Ingredients

Strawberries
4 packs (1200 g)
Granulated sugar
300-400 g
Lemon
1/2

Steps

1. Rinse the strawberries, drain well, and hull. Squeeze the lemon juice.
2. In an enamel or stainless steel pan, add the strawberries, lemon juice and sugar.
3. Put on a high heat and simmer whilst stirring occasionally to prevent burning. A lot of scum will be produced, so keep skimming the pot.
4. Simmer for 15-20 minutes until most of the moisture has evaporated and the mixture has thickened. Roughly crush the strawberries with a masher and it's done.
5. To store, pour the jam into an airtight container that has been sterilized with boiling water and keep refrigerated.
6. You should have a ratio of 3 parts strawberry to 1 part sugar. Calculate the amount of sugar you need based on the weight of the strawberries.

Story Behind this Recipe

When I spread strawberry preserves (with large strawberry chunks), if I spread it on sandwiches or on bread, sometimes it's too runny and messy, which makes it hard to eat. Preserves look presentable, but I went for practicality and made this crushed jam instead.
