 1/2 cup granulated sugar

 Pinch of salt
Yields1 Serving
Prep Time2 minsCook Time20 minsTotal Time22 mins

Instructions

1

Add strawberries, sugar, lemon juice, and a pinch of salt to a heavy-bottomed pot and cook the mixture over a medium heat. As the fruit begins to soften, mash the fruit with a potato masher. Place 2-3 metal spoons in the freezer.

2

Bring the mixture to a boil and stir frequently. Cook until the mixture thickens, about 20 minutes.

3

To check for doneness, dip one of the frozen spoons in the mixture. If you can drag your finger across and the jam holds its form, it is done.

4

Transfer the mixture to a 2 8-ounce mason jars and let cool. Seal and keep in the fridge for up to 3 weeks.
