Ingredients

  • Strawberries - 2 pounds or 900 grams.
  • Sugar - 1 1/4 pounds or 580 grams.
  • Lemon – 1 no. (Organic or un-sprayed)
  • Kirsch (Optional)

Cooking guidelines

The strawberries must be washed and hulled before cutting them into quarters. (You have ensure that all pieces are of same size)

They need to be tossed with sugar in a big pot (nonreactive material)

After cutting the lemon in half, the juice must be squeezed into the pot, and the lemon halves should be added to the berries.

You have to stir properly and then set aside for 2 hours at last after covering. You can let it sit for up to 8 hours at room temperature and it is necessary to stir once or twice during the marinating process.

A small plate should be put in the freezer.

The heat has to be turned on under the strawberries to medium-high level and they must be cooked for 10 to 15 minutes. You have to stirring in an occasional manner as the berries reduce and the juices get thickened.

When excess amount of foam comes on to the surface, they must be skimmed away and there should be a consistency that is pretty similar to warm maple syrup.

After turning off the heat, a spoonful of the jam has to be placed on the frozen plate and the plate needs to be returned to the freezer.

You must check for a few minutes and it must be nudged when it wrinkles. If not, the plate has to be returned to the freezer and cooked the jam a bit more. Testing should be done and in order to achieve the right consistency, this process has to be done a good number of times.

Once the strawberry jam is prepared, the lemon has to be removed and stirred in a few drops of kirsch.

Finally, the jam should be ladled into the prepared jars.
