How to Make Strawberry Jam!! Homemade Small Batch Preserves Recipe

16/03/2017 को प्रकाशित
Learn how to make a small batch of homemade strawberry jam! Sometimes you don't want to make 12 pints at a time. Or maybe you don't have a canner. Well, this recipe is for you. Enjoy!
What you'll need:
2 lbs fresh strawberries
2 cups granulated sugar
1 Tbsp lemon juice
This recipe requires 2 lbs of strawberries which is approximately 4 1/2 cups of firmly packed chunked strawberries. You may use frozen berries if you wish but thaw them first. You can also use blueberries, raspberries, blackberries or any combination thereof.
Also, you cannot reduce the sugar in this recipe. It will not work. Since this is essentially a candy, it just doesn't work with less sugar.
If you wish to use a candy thermometer, you can do so. You will need to cook this to 220*F.

  • Thank you!

  • This was way too much sugar. Maybe 1.5 cups at most.

  • Excellent

  • Perfect jam recipe thank you so much for sharing have made it so many times we love it

  • Wow i would like to use a xylitol sugar

  • one cup sugar in grams?

  • this video should be call "HOW TO MAKE CANCER"

  • If anyone of you were to make this for your business what would you do or use to allow the jam to last longer??

  • I made the jam yesterday ,but today after a night in the fridge, its very difficult to spread

  • my life was changed by this jam.....

  • Good how many days save it

  • Wow

  • i made this and i just made 4 slices of toast and homeade strawberry milk its so good omg

  • Brilliant! While he was stirring, I thought that hot beautiful mixture would be good over butter pecan ice cream.

  • That seems like more sugar than anyone should have

  • Has anyone tried this with splenda maybe 1/2 sugar and 1/2 splenda ?

  • Jam-making is bad for you. It screws up the way you talk. Fast, fastest, fastest still....bah! What bad delivery. How many can catch what he is talking about?

  • Had made strawberry jam before, but will try your way to keep it more fruity/pulpy

  • Can someone tell me how much sugar in grams is this?

  • How many days will it last

  • Looks amazing. I am looking at the very expensive strawberry conserves in the shops (very tasty, but expensive), and I am thinking about trying out this recipe instead.

  • OMG I luv you and your channel. I’m going to be featuring your strawberry jam recipe on my IG @city_girl_gone_green I’ll be adapting the quantities but I’ll be sure to tag you and give you all the credit Are you on IG I’d luv to follow you there too 😊

  • I made this yesterday and wow. Legit the best tasting plain strawberry jam I’ve ever had. I did process the jars (two half pint and one 4 ounce jar which were all perfect for the yield) with the water bath method. Also, this was the first time I’ve ever made jam and your instructions were easy to follow and accurate. I really appreciate how you walked us through the process and especially your descriptions of the texture changes. Thank you.

  • BTS: *Sends to jimin*

  • I followed your recipe and my jam turned out AMAZINGG its taste so sweet and it was the best I ever taste thanks for the recipe

  • Very straight forward instructions, thank you. Why is it necessary to keep the jars hot before transferring the jam? What is the equipment you are referring to that "most people don't have it" when you were transferring the jam to the jars?

Have a preschooler that only likes strawberry jam (att) but would love some he made w grammy most, and would be so much healthier too
