All you need is fresh strawberries and sugar.

It takes about 10 regular sized strawberries to make a small jar of jam. Cut up each strawberry into 6 pieces with a knife.

Use any kind of food container or pot to hold the strawberry bits. Remove any traces of leaf and stalks. Remember to wash the strawberries.

Step 4: Cover the Pot with a Lid.

Place the covered pot of strawberry bits and sugar into the fridge. Leave it in the fridge overnight.
