Homemade Strawberry Jam

Strawberry season calls for strawberry jam! But the store-bought jams are loaded with chemicals and sugar. My version is much healthier that you’ll finish the jar in no time! All you need is 3 ingredients and a saucepan. Yes that’s it!

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 50 minutes
Total Time 1 hour
Servings 1 medium jar


  • 3 cups strawberries diced
  • 1/2 cup sugar or dry sweetener of choice
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice


  1. Chop all strawberries and put them in a non stick saucepan over medium heat with the sugar.
  2. When sugar is fully dissolved, add the lemon juice and bring to a boil.
  3. When it starts to boil, lower the heat and keep simmering for about 45 mins, stirring every 7-10 mins. The big chunks of strawberries will dissolve.
  4. You’ll know it’s ready when it thickens and become darker. Pour in an airtight container and keep in the fridge.
