How to make Strawberry jam at home- Jam recipes

strawberry jam Berries are in plenty now and each time I visit the supermarket, the strawberries and blueberries are too tempting to resist buying them even if I know that I may not find time to use them in my cooking or baking. But I did mange to make a strawberry jam and a blueberry cake(will be posting later) and then finished a tub of blueberries by just popping a few into my mouth everytime I opened the fridge and another tub is still lying in my fridge waiting to be used in something good. I hope so!!
My son loves to have his rotis with jams and I thought it was a good idea to make different jams and preserves with the fresh fruits available. Actually , I found the recipe in a Tarla dalal's microwave cookbook. But I made it on the stove top using the same ingredients. I did not use pectin. So here's how I made it.

Strawberries- 1 1/2 cup (chopped)
Sugar- 3/4 cup (Add more if strawberries are tart)
Lime juice- 1 1/2 tbsp

Mash the chopped strawberries a little. Heat a pan and add the strawberries. Add the Sugar and stir till it mixes well. Keep in a low flame and keep stirring in between for about 20 -25 minutes. Then add the lemon juice and stir. Place a drop of the jam on a clean plate. If its runny, stir for some more time. If it stays in one place, then remove from flame. The jam is ready.
Store it in clean sterile bottle.
To sterilize bottle, immerse the clean bottle in water and boil for 15-20 minutes. Also you can place them in a hot oven for sometime.
