Lemony Strawberry Jam

Lemony Strawberry Jam

Lemony Strawberry Jam

At the local farmers market in Midland Michigan last weekend, I came across beautiful Michigan strawberries from Hart. I thought I lost my chance to make strawberry jam this year when the 4th of July came and went in a flurry. I found this recipe online. It’s a new style of jam recipe for me. I have always used the Sure-Jell pectin recipe included in their box. This new recipe uses more strawberries, less sugar and no pectin! Lemon juice and lemon rind are the extra sources of pectin. Strawberries contain pectin, but not enough to firm up the jam unless you reduce it to a pulp.

When I made this lemony strawberry jam this weekend, it made 4 8-ounce jars. The Pioneer Woman said her recipe made 6 jars. I am including pics from my cooking experience with this recipe. Also, the link to the recipe is below:

Grate the lemons directly into the cooking pot. I love the Microplane for grating
