I used to think jam was such a complicated affair needing a lot of canning equipment, but making a small batch of jam for home use is so fast and easy. All you need is a heavy bottomed pot.

Making it yourself allows you to customize the flavors and control the quantity of sugar. Pectin, agar agar and other thickeners speed up the process a bit, but aren’t essential. I have some jam recipes that use nothing to thicken it. Those versions just need to be cooked a little longer.

Strawberries are pretty much available all year round so this jam can be made at any time of year. However instead of just plain old boring strawberry jam, I spiced mine up here and I can’t tell how how amazing the addition of ginger and rose works with the strawberries.

How long will this jam last?

This fresh jam should be stored in the refrigerator in a glass jar. This small batch jam can last up to 8 weeks in the refrigerator.

Before we get to today’s recipe, let’s take a look at some other recipe you can try.

  1. Love the color and texture of this jam…way healthier than store-bought ones which are loaded with preservatives. I also love the spice and rose addition to this jam…nice one!

  2. Strawberry and rose is a great combo.I have never tried making jam at home. Looks very appetizing and love your spoon in the first pic ๐Ÿ™‚

    How long will this keep? Can I seal it jelly jars then put it in the pantry or must it be refrigerated or frozen?
