You don't need any canning equipment to make fresh jam--this recipe calls for just 15 minutes and a microwave. Low in sugar, the jam gets an exciting lift from Meyer lemon. It keeps in the refrigerator up to 6 weeks.
2 cups strawberries, hulled and quartered
1/4 cup sugar
Zest of 1 large Meyer lemon
2 tablespoons Meyer lemon juice
How to Make It
In a 2-qt. glass measuring cup or bowl, combine all ingredients. Let stand until very syrupy, stirring occasionally, about 15 minutes.
Microwave until mixture is shiny and reduced to about 3/4 cup, stirring after 5 minutes, 10 minutes total. Pour jam into a jar and let cool (it thickens as it stands).
