Fresh strawberry jam

Hubby bought home two punnets of Strawberries from the supermarket the other day so I decided to make Strawberry jam.
I don’t usually bother making strawberry or other jams on the stove as it’s too messy, fiddly and time-consuming for me. In the Bellini it’s easy.
All I had to do was cut up 500 gms of strawberries and put them in the jug. With the blunt blade and mixing tool.
Add 500 gms sugar, 1/2 a sachet of jamsetta and then the juice of 1/2 a lemon.
Mix on SP1, 100 deg for 30 mins.
Pour into hot sterilised jars.

To sterilise the jars, wash in hot soapy water, rinse well then pop them in the oven at 150 degrees while your jam cooks.

Then pour the jam in carefully as it spits and bubbles. Close up the lids and with a bit of luck the heat will activate the vacuum seal.

My kitchen smelt delicious while the jam was cooking!

500grams of strawberries yielded 3 jars of jam. Yummo!
