Well, there are few things that makes us happier than eating a real good strawberry jam. There are as many recipes as there are cooks in this world. I thought that for the first jam recipe I would start by something really, really easy, and yet, really, really good. To be eaten with plain yogurt (vegan or not), on a toast, with pancakes or in a cake, this jam will not disappoint you.
If you are in the process of avoiding processed food, than I would suggest you to start by making your own jams. There are products that are difficult to find a replacement for and others that are extremely easy. This one is one of them. It is very easy, very fun, you can control what goes in them (including sugar quantities) and you can make them at the same time as you are cooking something else so it does not become time-consuming. As I always give some background check on each recipe, strawberries are cultivated since the 17th century, even if they are mentioned since Roman times for their alleged medical properties. Impossible to tell you though who invented the strawberry jam ;). Oh and before we start, remember: it is important to sterilize the jars if you are making more than one jar of jam (as there are no conservatives you have to make sure that bacterias won’t grow in your jam). Be cautious and don’t burn yourself on the process!
