Easy homemade strawberry jam

3 Ingredient Simple Strawberry Jam (without pectin)

  • Author: Sophia Inza


An easy 3 ingredient strawberry jam you can make at home to go on your toast, on muffins, in cake batters, and pancakes. The options are endless with this delicious jam!



  • 2 cups fresh strawberries
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice


  1. Place a small dish in the freezer for testing your jam once it’s done.
  2. In a large deep skilled or saucepan, add all of your ingredients. Bring to a full boil stirring often. Keep boiling and stirring until it thickens (about 10 minutes or so).
  3. When you think you have the right consistency, remove the plate from the freezer and add a small spoonful of the jam on the plate. Let it sit there for 30 seconds and then tilt it over your saucepan/skillet. If it slides off right away, or just seems too thin, keep boiling and stirring 2 minutes at a time until it becomes your desired consistency. Once it moves slowly or drizzles off your spoon really slowly, it’s ready!
  4. Transfer to a heat proof container (a mason jar is excellent for this!). Cool to room temperature and then place in the refrigerator. Use within 1 month.
  5. Enjoy!
