Homemade Strawberry Jam

Yesterday, my hubby bought some strawberries and since it was quite a lot, I decided to keep a packet (about 450gm) for strawberry jam.  Well, even though this is my first time trying homemade strawberry jam, my children and hubby like it so much.  I don't have an exact measurement but I just estimate according to my taste.

Ingredients :

- 1 bowl of strawberry 
- a quarter of lemon (can get about 1 1/2 tablespoon of lemon juice) 
- half bowl of sugar
- 1 cinnamon stick
Method :
1. Combine strawberries, cinnamon stick and sugar in a medium sized pot. Bring it to a simmer over medium heat.

2.  Stir frequently and simmer for over an hour or until thick. Stir occasionally.

3. Remove from heat. Stir in the lemon juice. Cool at room temperature before storing it in jars. Refrigerate it.
  4. Store it in a jar and refrigerate it.

I am glad that my first attempt is quite successful. I will try other homemade jams soon!
