2 (500grams) Strawberries, stalks removed, do not wash make sure they are dry.
1 1/2 Cups Normal Sugar
The juice of 1 lemon
1/2 Tbs butter – this is added so a scum doesn’t form on the surface.
LET’S PUT IT ALTOGETHER
1. Place the strawberries into a large saucepan.
2. Add the sugar and place over a low heat stirring occasionally until all sugar is dissolved.
3. Once the sugar is dissolved, add the lemon juice and butter and turn up to a high heat and allow to boil for 10 minutes.
Test on the back of a spoon if it looks like it like it wants set then it is ready if not boil for another 5 minutes or until it is at setting consistency on the back of a spoon.
4. Place into a glass jar and allow to cool completely in the fridge.
HINT: just underripe strawberries are meant to be the best as there is more pectin to help with setting. Avoid using squishy overripe strawberries. They are best for baking.
