For this recipe, I used Silver Spoon Jam Sugar to avoid having to use pectin. As a rule, strawberry jam can be tricky to set, but there were no problems at all using this recipe. I’d even go as far as saying it set too much, so I might be tempted to slightly up the fruit to sugar ratio for my next batch.
We have had loads of strawberries from our plot this year, so making jam for the next year has been a sensible idea. It’s nice to think that due to the plot, we won’t have to buy jam for a whole year. It’s an impressive achievement considering we only had about 4 strawberries in total last year.
