This recipe unlocks the full potential of fresh strawberries, capturing their essence without the need for heat. Allow the strawberries to macerate, infusing the sugar with their luscious juices, resulting in a vibrant, vitamin-rich jam that’s a feast for both the eyes and the taste buds. Say goodbye to the stove and dive into the simplicity of this delightful no-cook strawberry jam!
- 1 kg (about 2.2 pounds) of strawberries
- 800 grams (about 4 cups) of sugar
Wash the strawberries, remove the stems, and pat them dry. Cut each berry into 4-6 pieces.
Layer the berries in a bowl, alternating with sugar. Let it sit overnight at room temperature. The strawberries will release their juice, and the sugar will dissolve. If needed, gently stir the jam with a spoon a few times.
