Homemade Strawberry Jam

If peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are in your regular lunchbox rotation, I highly recommend this homemade jam.  No candy thermometers (or whatever it is my aunt used for hers) involved.  But the result is pure deliciousness.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 lb chopped strawberries
  • 1 TBSP lemon juice
  • 2 TBSP honey (you may need more if your strawberries aren’t sweet)
  • dash of nutmeg (optional)

DIRECTIONS

  1. In a heavy bottom saucepan, combine all ingredients. Simmer on VERY low heat for about 25 minutes.
  2. Use the back of a wooden spoon to smash the strawberries along the way.
  3. Remove from stove. Puree in a food processor to get rid of big clumps.
  4. Cool and store in a glass container. Keeps for about a week.
