Egyptian recipe of strawberry Jam

This is my first trial to make Jam or Jelly at home. If you have ever watched “Friends” sitcom, I am like Joey eating Jam off the jar with a spoon, no bread, no nothing. Same for Nutella. I love the homemade Jam, something about it makes me feel happy. Perhaps, the little cute jars unlike the commercial ones. I made the strawberry Jam for the first time but inΒ my learning process, I made huge mistake of adding more sugar than I supposed to. I like things sweet but I overdid it with sugar this time. My kids loved it though, of course!! Do not worry, the recipe below has the sugar amount adjusted. Enjoy!

Ingrediens

4 cups of sliced strawberries (about 2 lb)
4 cups of white sugar
3 tablespoons lemon juice

Wash and dice the strawberries in small pieces.
rub it well with 2 cups of sugar.
Set aside in fridge overnight or for a couple of hours.

Let it stay on the heat until the juices condenses and it becomes thick.
