Who could resist this quick and easy recipe for strawberry jam? We are coming in to the best time of year for strawberries and if you have too many, this is a great way to use them up. Jam freezes well for up to eight months, you will just need to keep it in the fridge once it has defrosted. Note that the jam might go cloudy after freezing, but once it has thawed just give it a good stir and it will become clear again.

We get our strawberries from Pat Clarke in Stamullen, a great producer of soft fruit. I always look forward to catching up with him at Bloom. It is one of my favourite events of the year and I will be doing demos at the Bord Bia Quality Kitchen, so do pay us a visit.
