  1. Classic mode Step 1

    If you are washing the strawberries do this before you prepare them and make sure they are really dry. Any extra water will affect the pectin in the strawberries and may affect the set of the jam. Place the strawberries in a bowl and pour over the lemon juice. Set to one side for about 1 hour.

    Place the strawberries in a large preserving pan with the sugar, cook on a low heat until the sugar has dissolved, stirring occasionally. This should take about 10-15 minutes.
