What you need:

6 1/2 lb /3kg strawberries, hulled, halved
6 1/2 lb / 3kg white sugar
Juice from 1/2 a lemon

What you do:

First of  all wash and sterilise the  jars and lids that you will use.

In a large saucepan, put in the strawberries and sugar & mix all together.

Leave for a couple of hours so the sugar can soften all the fruit.

Add the lemon juice then simmer over medium heat, stirring all the time untilall the fruit is soft.

Remove 1/3 of the fruit & leave to one side.

Keep simmering the remaining mixture until fruit is mostly dissolved & the  jam coats the back of a spoon.

Divide the fruit that was put to one side  between the jars then fill with jam.

Allow to cool, then seal with the lids.

Keep refridgerated.
