Every single day while returning from school my legs stops exactly at the Bakery near my place. My paati without any further questions hands me over with money to pick up the bun butter jam and fresh hot from oven Coconut cookies / Butter biscuits. . Immediately on seeing me that Bakery anna packs my stuffs.

Gone are those wonderful childhood days... I use to wonder how do they make such yummy jam bit pulpy but spreadable.. Though this being my first try on jam i did succeed. 

This is one of the easiest and quickest spread i have ever made. When strawberry prices slashed to Rs.50 per pack picked up couple of them and froze them.

No pectin, preservatives nothing is needed to make this one. Only 3 ingredients and they are done in few mins. Sugar addition can be increased or decreased based on the needs. 

Made wheat bread jam banana sandwich for breakfast.. It was totally yummm..

Preperation Time: 5 mins
Cooking Time: 12 mins 
Stores well for 20 days if refrigerated.

What you need:
