Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 lbs strawberries, cleaned, hulled, and cut lengthwise into 1/4-to 1/8-inch slices
  • 12 cup sugar
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 cup strawberry jam (about 11 ounces)

Directions

  1. Toss berries with sugar and salt in a medium bowl. Let them stand for about 30 minutes to dissolve sugar, tossing occasionally.
