When we were in our summer house, we picked more strawberries than we can eat each day from our garden and we made jam with some of them.

In Turkey, the best strawberry type for making the jam is this ones which we call Osmanlı (Ottoman), small, sweet and with a powerful strawberry smell.

The recipe is easy. Wash and clean 1 kg of strawberries…

Cover them with 1 kg of sugar and leave overnight (or at least 8 hours) in a flat pot to become juicy…

Next day, cook it in a pan in slow heat. During the cooking process, clean out the foams forming in the surface of the jam with the help of a spoon.

After the first 20 minutes, take the strawberries out with the help of a skimmer for not overcooking them and keep cooking the juice until it gets thick.

Add the strawberries again, add the juice of 1,5 lemon, cook 5 minutes more and that’s it. Enjoy your strawberry jam!
