Jordbær Syltetøj (Strawberry Jam)

Since I can't get "Den Gamle Fabrik" jam here easily, it's not that difficult to do it yourself, although due to the flavor and sweetness of strawberries, it takes some playing around.

Prep: 30 - 60 minutes

Cook: 30

Yields: 2 glasses


  • 01.

    Remove green from strawberries.

  • 02.

    Add water, vanilla and strawberries to a pot on medium high heat. Sprinkle with HALF of the sugar to bring out the juices.

  • 03.

    When it starts to cook, keep stirring and when reduced by a quarter, add as much lemon juice as you like. I prefer more as I think it brightens the flavor, but you might not.

  • 04.

    Also pour 1 dl of the juice into a bowl and stir in 2 tbsp gelatin (per quart of total product) and add to refrigerator (or freezer) and wait until completely cold.

  • 05.

    Then add back to the simmering jam and stir for a minute.

  • 06.

    Taste for sugar and/or lemon juice and store in sterilized jars.
