Let’s get going with the recipe.

Wash the strawberries, pat them dry.
Then hull them using a paring knife (a regular knife will also do).
Chop them roughly and keep them in a large bowl. Add sugar to this and mix well.
Cover and set it aside for 4-5 hours. Remember to stir it once every 30 minutes or so.
This will macerate the strawberries well (help in releasing the juices).

After 4-5 hours, that’s how they should look.
Alongside, place a ceramic/ stainless steel plate in the freezer, it will be used later to check the consistency of the jam.
Heat a heavy bottomed pan, add the strawberries with all their juices to the pan, stir continuously until they come a rolling boil, this will take about 6-7 minutes.

Using a potato masher, mash the strawberries well and continue to stir.
Cook for another 10 minutes. Add the lemon juice at this stage (lemon juice is added to give a nice gloss to the jam).
Let it cook & allow the juices to reduce for a few minutes, but ensure you stir it constantly.

Once the jam looks thick and gooey, drop some on the chilled plate and wait for 30 seconds to let it set. Then draw a line in between, if the lines do not spread into each other, it means that the jam is ready & you can turn off the gas.
If not, then cook it for another 5-7 minutes and repeat this step with another chilled plate.
