Quick and Easy Strawberry Jam

Ooo we are in for a winter treat-- strawberries are starting to come in! Strawberries are obviously prime ingredients for tasty desserts like strawberry shortcake and strawberry cupcakes, but you can whip up another sweet strawberry treat in just 10 minutes: strawberry jam. Making jam isn't necessarily intimidating, especially if you're just popping it in the fridge for immediate use instead of preserving it in cans. Give the fresh stuff a try!


1 quart hulled strawberries
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice


In a food processor, process strawberries until coarsely chopped. Transfer to a large skillet and stir in sugar and lemon juice. Cook over medium-high, stirring frequently, until jam is thickened and bubbles completely cover surface, 9 to 10 minutes. Transfer jam to a jar and let cool to room temperature. (To store, seal jar and refrigerate, up to 10 days).
