Make the most of the strawberry bounty with this simple stove top jam recipe.
Homemade Strawberry Jam
For every 1 cup strawberries:
-1/3 cup sugar
-1/4 tsp vanilla
-1 tbsp chia seeds
-1 tsp lemon juice
Wash and remove stems from the strawberries.
Place into a pot with the sugar and vanilla.
Cook on medium low heat, stirring every few minutes.
As the strawberries soften, purée them with a potato masher until desired consistency.
Remove from the heat and mix in the chia seeds and lemon juice. Let it rest for 20-25 minutes.
Whilst still warm, jar the jam in mason jars. Let it cool completely, then place in the fridge. It will thicken as it cools down.
