Note to self: don't buy strawberries in the middle of winter. But if you do, and you realize too late they're lacking in sweet strawberry tasty goodness, make this jam. The sugar and lemon juice perform their magic on the berries, and you end up with this wonderful jam. Store in refrigerator. —mrslarkin

In This Recipe
  1. In a medium pot, heat strawberries, sugar and lemon juice to boiling. Continue stirring and boil for 10 to 15 minutes, or until jam thickens.
  2. Remove from heat. If desired, skim off foam - I stir it right back into the jam. Stir in creme de cassis and let mixture cool slightly.
  3. Pour into jars and refrigerate.
