Strawberry Jamyields 1 pint
- 3 cups chopped strawberries
- 1 1/4 cup sugar
- 2 teaspoons of xanthan gum (xanthan gum is a gluten free emulsifier and thickener found in most cooking stores – I suppose you could also use pectin but I happened to have this on hand!)
- juice of 1/2 lemonMix strawberries with sugar and xanthan gum and stir until the strawberries are juicy. Transfer the mixture to a sauce pan. Simmer over medium high heat for 12 minutes, until it’s thick and, well, jammy. Transfer to a jar. From here you can process it in a water bath or just eat it within 3-4 weeks and store in the refrigerator.
