Homemade Strawberry Jam

My strawberry harvest has been fantastic this year, unfortunately I am the only one that likes what to do with all the strawberries???  I decided to make strawberry jam

I looked around for a good recipe and came across this one on the Good Food Channel Site:
Strawberry Jam Recipe

I halved the amount of strawberries and added vanilla seeds but then followed the recipe as suggested.

Chopped and ready to simmer with the lemon juice

I scraped the seeds from the vanilla pod and put those into the pan too

Simmering away to soften the strawberries

Jars ready to go into the oven to sterilise

Time to add the sugar and to turn up the heat

Jam boiling away to reach 104 degrees

And the finished result.....six jars of delicious strawberry and vanilla jam


  1. Oh, yummy, yummy, I love strawberry jam and that added vanilla sounds even more tasty.
    Have a great day and enjoy the jam ; )

  2. Thank you I'm sure I will :-)
    Have a lovely weekend
