i love making my own strawberry jam.


step 1. go to supermarket. or go to the backyard, if u have wild strawberries in your backyard. if u are going to supermarket please bring some cash. if you are going to your backyard, bring a knife in case u have to fight with a bear over the berries.


step 2. add half amount of sugar to the strawberries or add more sugar if u like it super sweet. for example. if u have 500g of strawberries, add 250g of sugar. and some lemon juice.


step 3. pour the sugar onto the strawberries and crush them with your hands, until juice flows out and mix with sugar. please take note, sugar would not melt at this stage, unless your hands are hot like fiiiaaahhh!


step 4. boil the mixture for about 15-20 mins, add a bit of corn starch (mixed with water) if u like it thick.


store the jam in sterilised jars while it's still hot. ta-da! there u go, home made strawberry jam.
