Homemade Strawberry Jam Basic Recipe

The strawberry jam is cooked to a tender consistency, and its sweetness and moderate acidity are well balanced and concentrated. The crunchy pulpy texture of the strawberries is still there, giving it a natural flavor. It is a delight to eat on a piece of crispy toast with a generous amount of butter and strawberry jam.

The important thing in making jam is not to rush. You need to wait for the strawberries to release their moisture, but the process itself is very simple, so try it in your spare time.
