Strawberry Chilli Jam


What you’ll need:

1.5kgs Fresh Stawberries

1.5kgs raw sugar

1tbs Cajun/chilli spice

1 pkt jam setta

2 tbs lemon juice

1/4 cup water


How to do it:

Clean and prepare jars with hot soapy water or put in the dishwasher, then place in the oven while you start the jam.  Boil lids in a big pot with boiling water for about 10 minutes, remove and place on a paper towel.

Clean wash and hull strawberries. I then process mine in the food processor by pulsing a few times.  Transfer to large pot and allow to heat slowly until bubbling away nicely.

You can then add the sugar and jam setta.  Bring up to the boil and start skimming away the scum from the edges. Allow to rapidly boil until you start to see set, or a wrinkle on the top of a dollop on a cold plate.

Funnel into sterile jars.

I have actually taken to processing the sealed jars in a boiling water bath for 10-15 minutes as well.

I got 5 375ml jars from this batch
