|Strawberries and jam sugar|
|The jam sugar has dissolved and is now ready for the next stage|
I used the Judge Thermometer, which I reviewed a while back, to test the jam was at setting point, the thermometer shows the temperature isn't far off the 105ºC needed for the setting temperature.
|If the jam wrinkles when you run your finger through it and leaves a clean line,|
the jam has set
1kg Jam sugar with pectin
Juice of 1 lemon
A knob of butter
You will need: 3 saucers chilled in the freezer ready to test for the set
3 x 500ml hot sterilised jars
1. Prepare the strawberries by hulling and wiping any debris off the berries.
2. Add the sugar, lemon juice and strawberries to the pan. Crush some of the strawberries with a potato masher and keep some whole.
3. Heat over a medium heat stirring to dissolve the sugar.
4. Add the knob of butter. Keep stirring,increase the heat to bring to a rolling boil and rising in the pan. Boil for 4 minutes - the thermometer should read 105 ºC.
5. Remove the pan from the heat. Test for setting - place a few spoons of jam on a chilled plate, leave to stand for a minute and if the jam wrinkles when you run your finger through it this means you will have a set. Leave the jam in the preserving pan to cool for 15 minutes then pour into hot sterilised jars using a jam funnel.
6. Place a waxed disc on top of the jam. Cover the jar with a damp cellophane disc and secure with a rubber band. Store in a cool place.
