Supper for the kids - Toast bread with butter and strawberry jam

500g strawberry, washed and cut wedges
100g water
100g brown sugar (it depends on how sweet you want it to be. If needed, add more)
Method :
1. Put all the ingredients in the pan and cook it on the slow fired. Continue to stir the mixture every few minutes.
2. Cook until it is thicken. This take about 35 to 45 minutes.
3. Once it is ready, off the fired and let it cool. Keep in the container.

Thks Erina for the simple recipe. Glad to note no need for pectin, cause i didnt know where to get it. Does this mean the jam result is more watery?
