Simple Strawberry Jam







Show your man what an old-fashioned country girl you really are and whip him up a batch of homemade strawberry jam.  This recipe is so easy, you won’t believe it. And the colour?! (If happiness had a hue, this would be it.)




1 pound strawberries (I used one large basket, about 2 pints)

1/4 cup sugar

1 tablespoon lemon juice




Mash strawberries coarsely in a food processor or with a masher.  Pour into in sauce pan with sugar and lemon and heat on medium high for 8 minutes, until jam thickens and boils.  Scoop jam into jar and let cool to room temperature.  Lasts in fridge for seven days.  Serve on toast or swirled into vanilla yogurt.
