Strawberries – 15 to 16 nos.

Sugar – 1/2 cup

Lemon juice – 1 tablespoon


Rinse the strawberries and remove the stalk.  Chop them finely into small pieces.

Heat a pan on low flame.  Add the chopped strawberry pieces and sugar.  Mix well.

Add lemon juice.  Keep cooking on a low to medium flame.  The strawberries will leave their juices.  Stir continuously till they are cooked.

Mash the strawberries gently occasionally with the top of the ladle.   The mixture will start reducing and thickening.  Simmer for some more time till the mixture starts leaving the sides of the pan. (It will take approx. 15 -20 minutes to make the jam).  Once the mixture reaches a thicker consistency, switch off the flame.

Once cooled down, it will become even more thicker.  Store the jam in an airtight container in a refrigerator and use it as and when required.
