Strawberry and Apple Jam

At the lake we always have a lot of fruit to make salads, desserts or to just cut up and put out when we have company.  (which is a lot).  For some reason both my husband and I picked up 2 one pound packages of strawberries.  

I try to do an inventory check in the refrigerator a couple times a week.  Don't you hate when good food ends up in the back of the refrigerator and it goes bad.  I certainly do!  

This weekend I think strawberry short cake will be a great dessert for our family get-together and we will pick up fresh strawberries but to keep the ones we have and before they go bad I thought about making a jam to preserve them.  Since there are 2 apples in the refrigerator draw I will be incorporating them as well.


  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 large lemon zested and juiced
  • 2 apples ,peeled and diced
  • 2 (1 pound) containers strawberries, hulled and halved


  1. Add sugar, lemon zest and juice in a medium saucepan over a low heat.   Stir until the sugar dissolves (do not leave the stove).  About 8-10 minutes.

  2. Add in apples and strawberries while keeping on the low temperature.  Stir together and cover to cook for about 20 minutes.

  3. Use a ladle and divide into glass jars.  Seal and keep refrigerated until ready to use within 3 days.

  4. Enjoy this jam with my shortcake biscuits!
