Strawberry Jam Without Pectin | Easy Homemade Strawberry Jam

Strawberry Jam, a delicious and easy to make jam with fresh strawberries. We love strawberries and mostly have it as it is, but occasionally i make this strawberries jam especially for the kid. It's so flavorful and absolutely delicious with a piece of bread. 

Usually many commercial jams are made with pectin which is used for thickening the jam and gives that jelly-like consistency. However, in general, when i make jams at home, i don't use any pectin but still the texture is so nice and easily spreadable on bread. 

So if you would like to make jam at home in small quantities without pectin, then definitely give a try on this super easy jam recipe. 


For this jam recipe, all you need is strawberries, sugar and some lemon juice. So the flavor, color and the taste of the jam  purely depends on the quality of the strawberries. 

I have tried this jam a couple of times before and i found that the freshly picked strawberries from the farms are so good for making this jam compared to the store bought strawberries. But if you're having only store bought, go ahead and make it by all means and it will still taste so good. 


The main advantage of making jam at home is that you can adjust how much sugar you want in the jam. If you feel that the store bought jams are super sweet and hurts your teeth, then you can easily reduce the sugar quantity in this recipe.

For this recipe, the given quantity of the sugar is for moderate sweetness. However, depending on the sweetness of the strawberries, you may need less or more  sugar as i mentioned. So give a taste test when the sugar is completely melted and adjust if it needs more. Just a gentle reminder, if the strawberries are so tart then definitely it needs more sugar to balance out the taste.

Ok, now let's check out on how to make this super easy and delicious strawberry jam.
