Strawberry thyme jam

Method

  • Wash the strawberries, remove their stems, and cut them into irregular pieces.
  • Add the strawberry pieces into a pot along with the sugar, the lemon juice, and the thyme. 
  • Stir with a serving spoon and leave the mixture into the pot for 1 hour.
  • Transfer the pot over medium-low heat and simmer for 8-10 minutes, until the sugar melts. 
  • Press the strawberries with a potato masher until completely mashed. Optionally, you can leave a few pieces and not mash them entirely.
  • Remove the pot from the heat.
  • Divide the hot jam into jars, that you have already sterilized, leaving a 1 cm border. 
  • Seal the jars well with their lids and transfer them to a large pot with the lid facing down. 
  • Fill the pot with enough boiling water to cover the jars completely, cover it with the lid, and boil for 30 minutes over medium heat. 
  • Remove the pot from the heat and leave the jars in the boiling water for another 10 minutes.
  • Open the pot’s lid, carefully remove the jars, and transfer them to your kitchen counter on a dish towel with their lid facing up. 
  • Leave the jars there for 12 hours. While they are cooling, you will hear a characteristic sound which will show you that they are sealed airtight.
  • 12 hours later, you can check if the jars are sealed airtight by pressing their jar in the center. 
  • If you can press the center, then they are not sealed airtight. In this case, refrigerate the jars and make sure you consume the jam within 5 days. 
  • If you cannot press the center down, then the jars are sealed airtight.
  • Store the jars with the jam in a cool, dry place for up to 12 months.
