Strawberry Jam

There is nothing quite like the sweet fairy floss smell of jam simmering on the stove top. And the added knowledge that the jam you are making is pure fruit with no added nasties.

This is a slightly lower sugar version than the other recipes I have seen. However, you may wish to add more or less depending on the quality of fruit you use. I have also been known to add a couple of apples to my jam (pureed fresh with skin first and then cooked with the strawberries). This adds extra fibre and texture and is a great way to use up old withered apples.
