Strawberry Lime Jam Time…

“Doubtless God

could have made a better berry,

than the strawberry,

but doubtless God never did.”

~ William Allen Butler

I love strawberries ๐Ÿ“


and they are now in season in the UK.


These complimentary-coloured fruits

will deliver the zing in this fruity jam.


  • 400g strawberries
  • 2ย  limes, juice & zest
  • 200g jam sugar (the one with pectin added)
  • 2 tbs Cointreau
  • Grinding of black pepper


Oh yum…I want one!


In with the lime juice and zest.


Add the warmed jam sugar.


  1. Remove the stalks and hull the strawberries, zest and juice the limes.
  2. Put the strawberries, zest andย  juice in a pan and watch the fruit cook down
  3. Add the warmed sugar and stir over a gentle heat until the sugar has dissolved.
  4. Bring to the boil and cook for about 5-7 minutes.
  5. Add the Cointreau and a grinding of black pepper and cook for 2 minutes.
  6. Remove the pan from the heat and test for setting a point by puttingย a little of the hot jam onto a chilled saucer.
  7. Leave to cool in the pan for about for 10 minutes.
  8. Pour into sterilised jars, cool, the pop in the fridge.


Now add the Cointeau and black pepper.


Have your sterilised jars at the ready.


I think I may need to make some jam tarts and scones!
