On a note

✔ If you want to cook with whole strawberries, then try to choose a medium-sized berries. Fill the sugar and let stand for 30-40 minutes to give fruit juice, or sugar will burn.

✔ Lemon juice is a natural preservative, it allows you to preserve the natural color of strawberries, even after prolonged cooking.

✔ If you cook without a thermometer, give the cook the jam for about 10 minutes over medium heat.
