Place the strawberries in a sauce pan with 2 Tsbp water (optional) on medium heat, cover and bring to a boil (7-10 minutes). The strawberries will first start breaking apart and liquifying. You can mash the strawberries further with a fork or potato masher or leave chunks depending on what you like.
The jam tastes best, once it has cooled down and thickened and is delicious on a toast with some peanut butter.
* This makes about 3 cups of jam or 16 generous servings.
