Strawberry Jam

Making Jams and preserves every summer has become a habbit for me. When I was in Chennai, it was Mango jams, Guava jams and Mom used to make mulberry jams and send over. This time, I made Strawberry Jam.  Since I made only 1 bottle which Iam sure will be over in 3 days, I didnt add any preservatives. So if you are making only a small quantity, no need to add any preservatives provided you keep it in the refrigerator, but if you are making large quantities, you should add citric acid to the boiling preserve towards the end.

Strawberries: 2 cups (Wash, drain and take off the stem)
Sugar: 1.5 cups

In a wide bottomed pan, put the strawberries and sugar and boil on a low flame.

Swirl the pan once in a while.
After about half an hour, you will get a thick consistency syrup which if you drop it by spoon on a plate, will stay like that.

Turn off stove and allow it to cool.
Yes, the strawberries will stay fruit like itself without breaking! :)
