Chunky Strawberry Jam

Bread and Jam who wouldn't like it,its every child's favourite snack to eat right..So what better than homemade jam,which is very easy,tasty and healthy to make at home because you can customise sugar addition according to your taste and preference,takes only few minutes to prepare.I have used few raspberries for flavour and colour.It can be prepared with any kind of fruit you like..It can be stored upto one week in the fridge.

15-20 strawberries, chopped
Raspberries,few (optional)
1/2 cup sugar or to taste
2tsp tablespoons lemon juice

 1.Place the strawberries and raspberries into a deep saucepan. Using a masher,squash the strawberries roughly. Add sugar and lemon juice and stir lightly.
 2.Place saucepan on the stove top and heat over low  medium heat until  the mixture becomes thick and glossy.Remove from heat and let cool about 5 minutes.
 3.Pour jam into a jar and chill for at least 1 hour.This will last upto 1 week if you keep in the fridge.

4.Serve with any kind of  bread,perfect for breakfast.
