Simple Jam Recipe with Rania Battany

Simple Jam Recipe

·       1 kg / 220 pounds hulled strawberries.
·       4 cups caster sugar
·       4 tablespoons lemon juice


·       Use fresh strawberries.
·       Only use jars that have been thoroughly washed then sterilised with boiling water.
·       Use good quality jars with secure lids.

1.    In a pot, crush strawberries with a potato masher.
2.    Add sugar and lemon juice.

3.    Stir over low heat until the sugar is dissolved. Increase to high heat and bring the mixture to a rolling boil. Using a digital thermometer, stir until the mixture reaches 105C/ 221F.
4.    Transfer to hot sterile jars but be sure to leave about 1cm/half an inch headspace. Seal, then immediately tip jar upside down. When you hear the “pop” sound, your jam jar is now airtight and can be stored in the fridge for several months.
5.    Refrigerate and enjoy.

Rania Battany lives with her husband and three children in the beautiful Yarra Ranges, Victoria, Australia. When she isn’t getting her hands dirty in the garden, frolicking with her chickens or dog, or chasing after her three young children, she is writing contemporary romance novels that tug at the heartstrings or curled up with a cup of tea and a book.

Fleeting Moments
Maya is floundering. She’s stuck in a dead-end job, is isolated from family and friends, and her father—the only person that ever truly understood her—has been gone four years. When her boyfriend leaves her for another woman, the rocky foundations of Maya’s life crumble to dust, and she sinks even further into the pit of grief and despair.

Until she meets him. Sam. The one with the animated smile and gentle eyes, who always sees the positive no matter how bad the negative. And the one who reignites Maya’s passion through his enthusiasm and zest, helping to rebuild her life, piece by piece. 

But when ghosts from Maya’s past resurface, her decisions almost destroy the few important relationships she has left, and the happiness she’s so recently found is threatened. She must overcome her demons and decide what matters most—the familiarity of the past, or the hope, love and possibilities of the future.
