Homemade strawberry jam ... in the Thermomix

As you may have seen in a previous post, I made butter and buttermilk scones in the Thermomix and that became part of a completely homemade Devonshire Tea.

Of course, with any Devonshire Tea, one needs strawberry jam and so I used the Thermomix to whip up some of that.

It has become a bit of a ritual for us but when we decide we want Devonshire Tea, I will make up scones, jam and whipped cream in the Thermomix. It's all so quick and easy, so if you have a Thermomix, this is something that is easy to whip up, fresh and perfect for company.

The thing I love about making up some jam in the Thermomix is that it makes up a small enough serve that I have jam for a few serves and then I'm done. The next time I need more jam, 20 minutes in the Thermomix and viola! more fresh jam!! It's so simple.

I remember when we lived in the mountains and had an orchard. We would have so much fruit that we would not know what to do with it. I tried making my own jam and would end up with jars and jars and jars of it that I would not be able to finish. Then, we made some friends who would sell jam in the local markets and offered our fruit to them in exchange for some jars of jam they made, but even then, we would end up with jars and jars.

The Thermomix way is perfect. A single serve of jam every time.

I have to say that I have grown to quite love fresh, homemade strawberry jam. The taste is divine.

This is a very simple recipe that I found on one of the Thermomix recipe communities, though I don't recall exactly which one. It's so amazingly simple and yet delicious.

Here's the RECIPE for the jam:


  • 1 package strawberries (250g punnet)
  • 1 granny smith apple, quartered and peeled
  • 120 grams sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Bean Paste (or Extract)


  • Add to thermomix bowl all ingredients.
  • Cook for around 20 min/varoma/speed 1 (longer if you want thicker)- yummo!
  • Blend for around 30 seconds / speed 4 if you want it smooth – quick, easy, DELICIOUS! Store in a sterilised glass jar in the fridge and with this quantity of sugar, will keep well for 1 month+ (if it lasts that long!)
* Makes 1 small jar

This jam, of course, is a total hit with The Boy. He has enjoyed slathering gobs and gobs of it onto the scones that I've made to go with it for a lovely Devonshire Tea. I have even made a (very amateur) video on it, which I will link below.

If you decide to make this, with or without the Thermomix (though I don't know how without - probably plenty of standing and stirring!), do let me know. Be sure to post pictures for me to see either on Instagram or on my Daz In The Kitchen Facebook page.
