Recipe type: Jams & Jellies
Serves: 2 x 450g jars
  • At least 2 kg fresh strawberries
  • 1 lemon
  • Granulated sugar
  1. Place your strawberries in a large pan along with the peel from your lemon and place on a gentle heat and simmer for 10 minutes.
  2. Strain through a jelly/muslin bag for several hours, preferably overnight.
  3. Measure the juice before putting it into a cleaned preserving pan – bring to a gentle boil.
  4. For every 600ml of strawberry juice add 450g of sugar and 100ml of lemon juice.
  5. Stir until the sugar has dissolved, ensuring the sides of the pan are free from sugar crystals.
  6. Boil rapidly for about 12 minutes or until setting point is reached.
  7. Remove from the heat and stir to disperse any scum.
  8. Pour into warm sterilised jars and seal.
Preparation time does not include optional overnight straining.

To make your Strawberry Glaze - add a little water to your jelly and warm through. Four to six tablespoons of jelly should be enough to glaze a large strawberry tart or 6 to 8 small tarts.
