Making homemade Strawberry Jam doesn't need to be difficult or time-consuming. Only 4 ingredients are needed for this easy-to-make jam that's certainly much better than anything storebought. Spread it over warm toast, spoon on to scones with a dollop of cream, use to sandwich cakes together, or get fancy and use in cocktails to add depth and flavor.
