  • 300 g gin soaked strawberries from making strawberry and lavender gin
  • 300 g fresh strawberries
  • 400 g granulated sugar
  • juice of half a lemon


  • Hull and chop the fresh strawberries and add these along with the gin soaked berries into a heavy based pan.
  • Add the sugar and lemon juice and slowly bring to the boil.
  • Boil for approximately 15 minutes until it has reached the setting point (220C of when a teaspoonful on a chilled saucer creases when you drag a finger through it)
  • Ladle into sterilised jars and pop on the lids.


If you haven't made my strawberry and lavender gin and don't have any gin soaked strawberries simply use 1 kilo of strawberries chopped up and soak overnight in 150ml gin. Use 1 kilo sugar and juice and zest of a lemon and follow above recipe.
