Super Fast and Easy Strawberry Preserves Recipe

Servings: 1 quart

Once these strawberries are washed and sliced, they are quickly transformed into delicious preserves that are perfect on toast, yogurt, and even ice cream.


  • 4 pints fresh, ripe strawberries, stems removed, washed and halved
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. water


  1. Place the strawberries, sugar, and water in a large, heavy bottomed pot over high heat.
  2. Let the mixture cook, stirring frequently, until a lot of liquid has been released, the strawberries begin to soften, and the liquid starts to bubble (about 10-15 minutes).
  3. Strain the strawberries, place them in a bowl, and put the liquid back into the pot.
  4. Continue to cook the liquid, without the berries, until it has reduced to a thick syrup.
  5. Add the strawberries back to the pot, cook for a few minutes more, and then remove from heat and pour into a clean bowl.
  6. Allow mixture to cool completely as it sets up and cools.
