Strawberry jam


On an oven-proof tray or dish heat thoroughly at 200°f:

1 pound sugar

Meanwhile, place in a pan over heat until it just comes to a boil:

1 pound strawberries, stems hulled, sliced

Remove from heat and mash to a pulp.

Add the heated sugar and beat briskly for 5 minutes.

Cover and let stand for 30 minutes in a warm place.

Beat briskly again for 5 minutes.

Repeat twice.

Refrigerate to cool if consumed soon, or place in sterilized, hot jars and seal, or freeze in small containers, for later use.
