Strawberry Jam recipe - Jam sandwich recipe

Strawberry jam and jam sandwich recipe - Here is the easiest and quickest strawberry jam and jam sandwich recipe for you all. Most kids like to have variety of sandwiches as their breakfast snack and after school snack.They even like to carry it to school in their snack box. Jam sandwich is one of their favorite snacks and it is popular among many. 

Sometimes, I buy mapro mixed fruit jam and store it in the refrigerator to use it on lazy days to make easy bread jam sandwiches. Occasionally, I make chapati wrapper by spreading the jam and ghee on it and trust me it tastes great. Mixed fruit jam is basically made by mixing variety of sweet and citrus fruits and jams available in the market contain preservatives and high content of sugar. 

However, home made jams have no preservative and much lesser sugar content in it. Keeping health in mind, I decided to go for home made jams with my own version. I either make apple pineapple jam or strawberry jam to make sandwiches. You can prepare this jam with only two ingredients. Earlier, I had posted apple pineapple jam recipe. Thus, this is my second jam recipe. If you have small kids and they prefer sandwiches, please do try this delectable strawberry jam and jam sandwiches to  treat your kids and enjoy.
