Serves – 2 small Jars

(no sugar)

Cook time: 40 min

**Healthy **Vegan

Ingredients

1 box of strawberry 
1/2 a lemon squeezed (no seeds)
1/2 cup melted jaggery

In a wide bowl, crush strawberries in batches until its completely mashed. transfer to a heavy bottomed saucepan, add melted jaggery, and lemon juice and set it boiling. Stir over low heat until the sugar is dissolved. Increase heat to high, and bring the mixture to a full rolling boil. Continue to boil for 15 minutes and till then find a good glass jar and sterilise it in boiling hot water. Transfer to hot sterile jars, leaving 1/4 to 1/2 inch headspace, and seal. Ready to go into the refrigerator. Last you easily for 3 months without any other ingredient. (I urge you to read the label of the store bought Jams once)

  • To test for jelling: Place three plates in a freezer… after about 10 minutes of boiling place a tsp of the liquid of the jam onto the cold plate. Return to freezer for a minute. Run your finger through the jam on the plate… if it doesn’t try to run back together (if you can make a line through it with your finger) it’s ready to be canned
