How to make Strawberry jam at home- Jam recipes

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.
