- In a medium saucepan over medium heat combine all of the ingredients. Smash the strawberries with the back of a wooden spoon OR use a stick blender to smooth out the texture. Bring the mixture to a boil and then reduce the heat and continue to simmer for 10-15 minutes, stirring constantly.
- Pour jam in a mason jar and let cool before covering and storing in the fridge.
*optional* to create a thicker jam, mix 1 tablespoon of cornstarch with 1 tablespoon of water to make a slurry. Pour the cornstarch in the jam in the last 2-3 minutes of simmering.
