Craigies Strawberry Jam

A Craigies classic using freshly picked strawberries from the farm!


  • 2 kg Craigie's Strawberries
  • 2 kg Sugar
  • 2 Lemons
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Oil


  • Hull and slice strawberries. Strawberries are low in pectin so add lemon juice to the cut-up fruit.
  • Heat the strawberries in a pan until the juices run.
  • Bring to the boil for 4/5mins stirring all the time.
  • Add sugar and oil (oil stops scum forming in jam) and bring back to boil.
  • Leave the strawberry jam to cool before you jar it to prevent the fruit rising in the jar.


A classic Craigies fave!
