Equipment

  • Jam Jars

Ingredients

  • 500 grams strawberries
  • 1 cup sugar 220 grams
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 apple cored and roughly chopped into small pieces

Instructions

  • Steralise your jam jars before you get started.  Wash well in hot soapy water and then place into an oven which has been preheated to 100 degrees and let them 'cook' for 15 minutes before carefully sitting aside until needed.
  • Place all of the ingredients for your jam into a large saucepan and cook over a medium heat for 5 minutes - stirring regularly until the strawberries begin to break down.
  • Increase the heat to medium/high until the mixture begins to slowly boil and cook for approximately 15 minutes or until the mixture thickens to the desired consistency and coats the back of a spoon when tested.
  • Allow the jam to cool for 10 minutes in the saucepan (it will also thicken a little more upon standing) before transferring to a blender/food processor and blitzing until the consistency is smooth before transferring to the prepared jars.

Thermomix Instructions

  • Steralise your jam jars before you get started. Wash well in hot soapy water and then place into an oven which has been preheated to 100 degrees and let them 'cook' for 15 minutes before carefully sitting aside until needed.
  • Place all of your ingredients into your Thermomix bowl and mix for 5 seconds, speed 5.
  • Scrape down the sides of your Thermomix bowl and cook for 20 minutes, 110 degrees, speed 1.
  • Let your jam cool slightly and then blitz for 8 seconds, speed 8 - make sure you gradually increase the speed and ensure the measuring cup is on.
  • Transfer your strawberry jam to the prepared jars.

Notes

  • You can skim any foam which may come to the surface off your jam before blitzing.
  • Make sure you leave the peel on the apples as this is what helps the jam to 'set'.
  • If you would like a thicker jam, simply cook it  longer.
  • This recipe can be doubled, your cooking time will increase.
