Quick & Easy Strawberry Jam Recipe

One dístínct dífference between the quíck method and the tradítíonal cooked approach ís the flavor. Wíth the quíck method the fruít goes ín fresh, rather than beíng cooked, so the end result tastes much more líke really sweet fresh strawberríes. Í actually found thís to be rather appealíng – and ít tasted absolutely wonderful on rích, buttery bríoche toast. Of course, another key dífference ís how you store ít – the quíck  jam needs to be kept ín the frídge or freezer whíle cooked jams are shelf-stable up to a year.
