Strawberry jam with lemon and mint
This jam recipe from Siúcra is surprisingly easy to make and uses only four ingredients.

500g strawberries

250g Siúcra Sure Set Jam Sugar

Zest and juice of 1 lemon

2 tbsp fresh mint

Rinse and hull the strawberries. Chop or blend any larger ones.

Put the berries in a pan together with the Siúcra Sure Set Jam Sugar and lemon. Bring to the boil and simmer for 2-5 minutes.

Do a consistency test by dropping a little jam onto a cold plate to check if the consistency is correct.

Remove the pan from the heat and carefully skim off any foam. Add the fresh chopped mint.

Pour the jam into hot, clean jars and seal immediately. Store in a cool place.

Level of Difficulty

To prevent contamination and lengthen the shelf life of homemade jams, it’s important to sterilise the storage jars. Wash them in hot, soapy water and rinse well but do not dry. Instead, leave them to stand upside down on a baking sheet while they’re still wet. Pop the tray of clean, wet jars and lids into a preheated oven at 140°C/120°C fan for approximately 15 minutes.
