  • 4 cups strawberries hulled and quartered
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 2 cups sugar
  1. Place in a large (4 litres/16 cups capacity) microwave safe bowl with the lemon juice. Microwave on high for 5 minutes. It should start smelling amazing already. Remove from microwave.

  2. Once you add the sugar the fruit won't break down much more so if you want it smooth cook for a little longer.
  3. Add the sugar and stir to dissolve.
  4. Return to the microwave, cook for 15 minutes on high, stopping every 5 minutes to stir and check. Don't leave unattended just in case it boils up and over the bowl.

  5. Pour into sterilized bottles. Seal.
