My quick and easy microwave recipe which takes less than 10 minutes to make!
200g strawberries, washed and hulled
160g caster sugar
2 tblspns lemon juice
Roughly chop strawberries and place into a large heatproof microwave bowl.
Microwave on high for 1 minute, uncovered, and stir.
Add sugar, stir and microwave on high for another minute, uncovered.
Add lemon juice, stir, make sure that sugar is now dissolved and microwave for another 2 minutes. Watch that mixture doesn’t overflow.
Allow to cool completely. Once refrigerated, it will set as jam – Delicious on pancakes or folded through whipped cream or yoghurt and will keep for a few weeks in a sterilized container in the fridge.
NOTE: Use oven mitts as sugar content can reach high temperatures.
To Make Fresh Stawberry Sauce:
