How to Make Homemade Strawberry Preserves without Pectin is easy and uses only a few ingredients. The result is a fruit preserve bursting with flavor to spread over toast, biscuits, or on that classic PB and J sandwich.
Place strawberries in a medium pot, add sugar, and lemon juice. Bring mixture to a boil over high heat and every so often mash the berries with the masher. Make the cornstarch slurry by mixing the cornstarch and water together.
