The season of strawberries is almost getting over and I am making lots of fresh strawberry homemade jam until the next season comes by. Bright red, tart and luscious Strawberry Jam is what I crave for and nothing is better than a homemade version of it. You pair it with a regular slice of bread, top it on your ice cream, layer it in your cookies or add a bit into your salad dressing, this homemade jam is surely to win your hearts!
