Homemade Strawberry Jam – Better than storebought

Is Strawberry picking season still on? If yes or no, you will be getting  some fresh Strawberries to make this most delicious and easy Strawberry Jam.

Strawberry Jam

Usually we go to Strawberry picking when it is season and this time we went with two other families. There were 6 kids and once we reached the spot, the kids planned to have a race for picking strawberries. The weather was so good and kids were in full energy, we ended up with lot more strawberries than we thought.


So what to do with that lot strawberries. Made  Strawberry Banana Smoothie and Strawberry Coconut water Smoothie many times. But when I couldn’t finish it off before those beautiful strawberries go bad, I have to use it up for good use. That’s how I ended up making this Strawberry Jam. My son usually doesn’t like Jam but he loved this and he wanted this jam in his sandwich every time. So you could see how good this jam is.

How did I make Strawberry Jam

I made this Strawberry Jam with just 3 ingredients like my most other jams . You can check out Mango Jam and Pineapple Vanilla Jam . The procedure starts when you hull Strawberries, then cook with required sugar till the strawberries becomes mushy. You can blend it if you like to be smooth Jam or chunky as I liked.

You can use this Jam in sandwiches or on crackers ( I liked it very much this way) or as I used in Strawberry Jam filled Chocolate. Anyways you are going to love this Strawberry Jam.

If you make this Jam and love it, please do click a picture and share it on Instagram tagging me #lathiskitchen. I would like to see your creation and share.
