Easy Peasy Strawberry Jam!

I have found the EASIEST strawberry jam recipe (and yes I'm being very arrogant indeed lol).  It was super easy and unlike another previous not-to-be-mentioned jam experiment, it set perfectly first time :)

Here's the recipe...

1kg strawberries (hulled and quartered)
2 x 500gm packs of jam setting sugar
A scoop of butter

1. Crush strawberries with a potato masher or stick blender
2. Place strawberries and sugar in a large, heavy based pot
3. Heat the mixture over a low heat until the sugar has all dissolved (don't allow it to boil)
4. Add a scoop of butter then bring the mixture to a full boil
5. Boil for 4 minutes only and then remove it from the stove and skim off any foam (I didn't bother with this though). Pour into sterilised jars and you're done!

My four year old had a great time cooking this with me but he loved eating it even more!
