This is what I came to find… a simple recipe for strawberry jam.

— Strawberries — Granulated sugar — Lemon juice — Butter


Mix the berries with the sugar in a non-reactive pan (stainless or enamel).


Cover the pan and let the berries stand for 8 hours.


After the 8 hours of standing time, bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat.


Stir in the lemon juice, return to boiling and allow to boil rapidly for 5 minutes.


After 24 hours, add the butter and bring the mixture to a full boil over high heat.
