Step 1

Remove the leaves and stems from the strawberries and place in a large, heavy-bottomed pot.

Step 2

 Tie the apple peel, apple core, lemon peel, and lemon seeds up in a piece of cheesecloth, to make a sachet, and add it to the pot (optional).

Step 3

Cook the berries with the sachet (if using) over very low heat for 20 minutes, or until a lot of juice has been released and foam is beginning to form on the surface.

Step 4

Add the sugar and bring to a rapid boil. Continue to boil for 30 to 40 minutes.

Step 5

Remove the sachet (if using), and stir in the lemon juice.

Step 6

Transfer the cooked jam to sterile jars, screw on the lids, and submerge in boiling water for 10 minutes to process.
