🏷 Time: 45mins
2lbs Fresh Strawberries
2TBSP Lemon Juice
Hull and dice strawberries into large chunks
Combine strawberries, lemon, and sugar in a dutch oven and mash until juice starts to form. Make sure that some of the strawberries maintain their integrity. We love a nice chunky jam
Heat strawberry mixture over medium heat, constantly stirring. Note: the strawberries will start bubbling up, as long as you keep stirring they wont boil over.
Place a small plate in the fridge to chill
After about 25 minutes the jam should be thick and reduced.
Spoon a small amount of jam on chilled plate. Drag a spatula through the jam, if it leaves a trail that does not immediately fill, the jam is ready with the right consistency. If not, continue to stir the jam over medium heat for 2 more minutes and repeat the chilled plate-freezer process.
Take off of heat and let cool for 10 minutes
Serve warm, or pour into an airtight container and store for up to 3 weeks
