Easiest Strawberry Jam Ever – made with just 3 ingredients, in one pot. This small batch, no-pectin strawberry jam is delicious and super easy to make!
Hello there! This is Katie from The Casual Craftlete blog. Today, I am very excited to share one of my favorite jam recipes. This Easiest Strawberry Jam Ever recipe really does live up to it’s name. It’s made with 3 simple ingredients and is so fresh and delicious. Strawberry season will be soon and you will want to save this recipe. This jam is perfect on toast and bagels in the morning, yogurt for a snack, or on top of ice cream for dessert. There really is no wrong way to eat strawberry jam. Sometimes I just dig in with a spoon.
The three ingredients you will need for this jam recipe are fresh strawberries, granulated sugar, and fresh lime juice. Start by washing one 16 oz container of fresh strawberries. Then hull and dice the strawberries into large chunks. Add the prepared strawberries into a medium size sauce pot. Next, add granulated sugar and freshly squeezed lime juice into the sauce pot with the strawberries.
Stir ingredients over medium-low heat until the sugar has dissolved (about 5 minutes). Increase the heat and bring mixture to a rolling boil. Stir and mash strawberries frequently and continue to boil, until jam has thickened (about 10 minutes). I like to use a potato masher because I think it is easier to mash the strawberries, but you could also use the back of a wooden spoon. Then transfer the jam to a clean mason jar and cool to room temperature. Seal the jar with a lid and store in the refrigerator up to 10 days. My jam never lasts that long because I eat it up in just a couple of days.
