Slice the strawberries in half and place in a heavy saucepan.
Add the sugar and lemon juice.
Place saucepan over a medium heat.
Stir gently, to make sure the jam doesn’t burn.
Leave to simmer for 20 minutes or until the jam reaches 220F.
Turn off the heat and let it cool for 15 minutes.
Stir in lemon zest.
Pour the jam into the (4) 8 oz. sterilized jars. Allow to cool at room temperature. Cover and refrigerate.
Store the jam in the fridge (for up to 2 weeks) and in the freezer for up to 6 months.
This recipe can be easily halved or doubled. Four jars are just right for my family: two jars to enjoy and two to give it away!
