Simple strawberry jam

Story by

ANNABEL LANGBEIN says, “to get anyone into gardening, especially kids, plant strawberries - they are so easy and so deliciously rewarding.” Try her simple strawberry jam recipe.


  • 2 cups crushed berries
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice


Mix crushed berries with sugar and stand for 3-4 hours in a non-corrosive container. Boil with lemon juice for about 5 minutes or until jam starts to set. Pour into sterilised jars and seal with sterilised pop-top lids.
