Refrigerator Strawberry Jam
There is nothing better than a toasted English Muffin topped with homemade Strawberry Jam! It is so easy to make Refrigerator Strawberry Jam and takes very little time. It is practically fool-proof so any level of cook can make this! Keep in mind, this is not canned so the consistency isn’t as thick and it won’t last in the refrigerator as long, only about 2 weeks. It will be gone before that in my house! The taste, however, is as delicious as any other jam.
Using a pastry blender, potato masher or fork crush the strawberries.
Pour the mashed strawberries into a medium
saucepan and add the sugar, pectin and lemon juice.
Adjust the sugar to the level of sweetness you desire.
Stir the mixture and cook over medium heat until the mixture comes to a boil .
Continue cooking until thickened, about 5 minutes.
Let it sit on the counter until the jam cools some then
pour it into a heatproof glass jar with a lid.
Store in the refrigerator.
Serve over your favorite bread.

Looks yummy ! 🙂
It’s strawberry season here perhaps it’s time I made some as it has been a while. I do like the tanginess of homemade jam
Me too! Our strawberries are not a very sweet variety so cooking with them is delicious! Don’t wait, strawberries will be gone in a blink of the eye!
Yes that is true!
I have to stay out of the strawberries 🍓 long enough to save some for the jam! Lol
Hahaha I have that problem when I pick them!
Ah, long time since I made jam! It’s so much nicer when homemade.
I agree! The taste is so much better than store bought.
Looks so good!
Perfect … our strawberries are in season right now!
Enjoy! I love how mine go from rhubarb to asparagus to strawberries to blueberries and then the garden. It’s like one gets done and another begins!
That’s a perfect way to do it Diane. Landscapers say that you are supposed to do that with your perennials as well, so there is always color in your yard during the growing season.
I used to make this with my kids when they were younger and then they gave jars to their teachers and bus driver. I don’t make it any more because we don’t eat a lot of jam.
What a nice gift for the teachers! I canned it when my kids were young as well. I stopped when they moved out and now the grandkids are here from Thursday night through Sunday night while their mom works so I am bringing back a lot of the recipes I use to make. Peanut butter is a staple in our house once again…hahaha
