Quickest Strawberry Jam Ever!

Have you check the ingredient label on your jam jar lately? If you have, you'll see there's about 2,000 artificial flavors and preservatives listed. This jam recipe only has 2 ingredients; strawberries & sugar. And as the title suggests it is the quickest strawberry jam ever. I understand that strawberry season has already passed, but this jam is still delicious year round. This recipe makes a small amount of jam but you can make a big batch and pour it into sterilized mason jars then store it in the fridge for about a month. You can have it on a piece of toast in the morning or even dollop a little over vanilla ice cream, YUM!  How ever you choose to devour this delicious jam it is still easy make!

2 lbs. strawberries
1/2 cup granulated sugar

Wash the strawberries, cut off the green tops, and place them in a big bowl

Add the sugar and scrunch the strawberries and sugar together using your hands 

Pour the stawberry mixture into a saucepan and boil over high heat for 30 minutes, skimming the pink foam every 10 minutes 

Serve with a lovely lemon tart or any dessert you love!
