Skillet Strawberry Jam


February 13, 2016


1 L strawberries (4 cups), hulled

1/2 cup sugar

juice of half a lemon (about 1 Tbsp.)

1/4 tsp. pure vanilla extract (optional)


1In a bowl, roughly mash your strawberries with a potato masher (you may need to lean into it at first, to get them going) or squeeze them with your fingers. Put them into a large skillet (cast iron is perfect!) with the sugar and lemon juice and cook over medium-high heat, stirring often and breaking up large chunks of berry with your spoon, until it thickens and your spoon leaves a trail across the bottom of the pan. (It should take about 10 minutes.) If you like, stir in the vanilla. Cool. Makes about 1 1/2 cups.
