- 500 grams strawberries
- 1 apple, (see tips)
- 1-2 tablespoons lemon juice, (approximately half a lemon)
- 170 grams caster sugar
Recipe is created for
- Hull strawberries and chop roughly. Add to bowl
Core apple and chop roughly (leave skin on). Add to bowl
Add lemon juice and sugar to bowl
Place simmering basket on lid to reduce splatter
Cook 35 minutes, Varoma temp, speed 1.5
check how well jam is set by placing 1 tsp of jam on a plate and putting it in the freezer for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes, if you run your finger through the jam, it should stay separate. If too runny, cook at varoma for 5 minutes - repeat until correct consistency is reached.
I've also created a variant for a mixed berry jam if you're looking for more flavour!
Accessories you need
If you add the sugar last, you shouldn't get problems with the jam catching on the bottom of the bowl
Granny Smith or Pink Lady apples work well. Others may also work, but I haven't tried them. If you try another variety, be sure to let everyone know how it worked in the comments!
This quantity makes just under 1 standard jam jar (mine 3/4 filled a Cottee's 500g jam jar)
This recipe is an amalgamation of a number of recipes, however the method comes from Tenina's recipe (//tenina.com/recipes/strawberry-vanilla-jam). Thanks Tenina!
