Total Time 1 hr 5 mins
Servings 24


  • 2 lb gooseberries tops/tails removed
  • 2 lb strawberries stems removed
  • 4 lb sugar
  • 150 ml water


  • Place 8 jam jars in a oven at 250F to heat up (to sterilize).
  • Put the fruit and water in a large pot and simmer until tender.
  • Add the sugar and continue to simmer, stirring slowly until all the sugar is dissolved. Boil rapidly until setting point is reached*.
  • Ladle jam into the hot jars (use a large mouth funnel), and fill to just before top. Cover with jar lids that have been prepared as per directions.
  • Allow to cool completely before storing.


*This is 220°F measured with a sugar thermometer. Or can test putting a few drops of jam on counter and let cool. Push the cooled jam with a finger. If a skin crinkles on top of the cooled jam then setting point is reached.
