My Strawberry Jam recipe will please you. Everyone loves the aromatic red fruits.

When the sun shines, when the strawberry fields invite you to pick them yourself, then the best time to get the sun in your glass is for an extension of the oh too short strawberry time.

So I set off and got the red berries straight from the field to show you how to cook jam.

Well, it’s true, I also wanted a delicious spread of bread. I succeeded in doing that and how, that’s what I show you here.

It follows my step by step instruction with many photos. I wish you good luck!

1. Preparing Strawberry Jam – Shopping and Preparation

It is so simple and today there are very few ingredients…

1.1 Ingredients and Shopping List

You need:

  • freshly picked strawberries
  • fresh apples
  • white, dry wine
  • vanilla beans
  • Gelling sugar 2 : 1 (2 parts fruit – 1 part sugar)

Please make sure that you have the following things for the preparation in the kitchen:

  • Screw glasses for boiling down
  • large saucepan
  • sharp knife
  • wooden spoon
  • scoop
  • beakers
  • vinegar essence or other strongly acidic vinegar
  • clean kitchen towels
  • hand blender

1.2 Preparation and Cleanliness

Hygiene during preparation is the be-all and end-all. Our fruit preparation has a shelf life of one year.  After half a year, the colour fades and the jam tends to turn grey-brown and also loses its aroma slightly.

Experience shows that the jars are usually emptied after a few weeks as if by magic.

My tip: Don’t cook too much strawberry jam, because it only lasts about half a year. If you love strawberry jam, make it out of frozen fruits out of season, that works too 🙂

  1. I clean my jam jars thoroughly before filling.
  2. In addition, I use a strong vinegar, from which I put 2-3 tablespoons into the empty jars and screw down the lid. Then I shake the glasses, so that the acid is distributed everywhere inside. Then I open the glass again and pour the rest away from the vinegar.
  3. When filling the jars with the hot finished jam, something goes wrong and stains the edge and the jar. This I wipe with a new kitchen cloth or wet kitchen paper quickly clean again.

My recommendation: Use a beak cup (a 1 l jug) to fill the glasses, then you will hit more accurately and hardly spill anything.

2. Additional Success Tips for Strawberry Jam

  • Please use apples, very finely chopped or even grated. Apples contain pectin and help you to bind them.
  • I love a beautiful dry white wine in my strawberry jam. I have used this delicacy here: Nina Viognier 2017, poderelapace.
  • Otherwise I recommend also a great dry Prosecco – please pay attention to good quality!
  • I use more preserving sugar than is indicated on the sugar package.
  • When processing strawberries, I make a gelling test during cooking: Put the jam on a plate with a tablespoon to check its consistency and see whether it fits or whether more gelling sugar is needed.
Jelly tasting: cook jam yourself

Gelling test: Place the cooked strawberry jam on a cold plate and allow to cool briefly. If you pull your finger through, the jam “stops”. Jelly bottom passed. If the jam is too liquid, simply add preserving sugar and bring to the boil again and test. © Food Photographer Thomas Sixt

Instructions
Cook Jam
  1. Buy the berries fresh from the market or go to the field and pick them yourself.

  2. Prepare the ingredients and cooking utensils.

  3. Wash the berries well under running water, then remove the green and halve depending on the size.

  4. Weigh the strawberries to determine the right amount of preserving sugar.

  5. Use gelling sugar 2:1: 1.5 kg strawberries and 1.0-1.3 kg gelling sugar. I think most Internet recipes are wrong. The berries contain a lot of water and need a lot of preserving sugar!

  6. Cut the peeled apples into small pieces.

  7. Scrape out the vanilla pod. Add the pod and pulp to the fruit.

  11. Remove the vanilla pod and mix the fruits with a hand blender.

  12. Carry out the gelling test, put some strawberry jam on a small plate and let cool. You can pull through the fruit preparation with a spoon or your finger, if the jam "stops" the firmness is good. Otherwise add more preserving sugar, test again and then prepare for bottling.
