Prep Time : 5minutes mins
Cook Time : 20minutes mins
Total Time : 25minutes mins
Servings: 20 approx (makes a little under 1 cup/240ml)
250 g strawberries
125 g raspberries
100 g sugar
15 ml lemon juice
¼ teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
Hull the strawberries and roughly dice. Put all of the ingredients in a small-medium saucepan and put on a medium heat. Stir as it heats to dissolve the sugar and break up the fruit a little as they soften. As it cooks, prepare your jar/jars – either warm in a low over a few minutes or submerge in boiling water to sterilize. Take care using tongs/gloves to handle as you remove.
Bring the jam to a simmer, reduce the heat a little and simmer for approximately 15 minutes (or longer, as needed), stirring occasionally. It should become darker in color and thicker – when you stir a spoon through, it will take a bit longer to close in behind.
Remove the pan from the heat, allow to cool a minute or two then skim off any foam. Transfer to your prepared clean jar(s) and put lid on while still hot. Leave to cool.
