How to Make Strawberry Jam in a Bread Machine

It seems to happen every summer. Whether you visit a berry farm or farmers market – or just have generous neighbors, you inevitably find yourself with a surplus of strawberries. Everyone enjoys strawberries fresh, but they only last for so long. Sooner or later, you have to use them or lose them, and no one wants to waste an in-season strawberry.

How to Make Strawberry Jam in a Bread Machine

One of the best ways to preserve the succulent flavor of summer strawberries is to make jam. Stored in the fridge, you can enjoy strawberry jam for weeks, and in the freezer, up to a year. It’s a welcome a treat in the dead of winter, when you’ve been eating beef stew for days on end. So do yourself a favor, and preserve this slice of summer while you can.

How to Make Strawberry Jam in a Bread Machine

Strawberry jam, or strawberry preserves, can easily be made in a bread machine. Just add fresh strawberries, some sugar, pectin and lemon juice to a bread maker and start the machine on the jam cycle. After the automated cycle has completed, allow the jam to cool and transfer it to storage containers.

For fridge storage you can use glass jelly jars like the ones we used here, but don’t use them if you’re storing in the freezer. Frozen jam can expand and break glass jars, so look for plastic “freezer jars” or use plastic bags. When you’re ready to enjoy your frozen jam, just transfer it to the fridge and allow it to defrost overnight. Our recipe makes about six cups, so you’ll be stocked up for months to come.

March is National Nutrition Month, and for many people, the best health includes following an eating plan catered to specific dietary needs. For some, this means eating gluten-free. Whether your gluten-free diet is a necessity or a general guideline, you may find baking bread at home to be a better option than the stale, crumbly options available on most grocery store shelves. And with a dedicated gluten-free bread machine, you can hope to avoid cross-contamination. Our gluten-free whole grain bread contains over 50% whole grains and is perfect for sandwiches, toast or bread pudding.
