  1. 1. Prepare the Strawberries:
    Start by hulling the strawberries and chopping them into fine pieces.

    2. Combine Strawberries, Sugar, and Lemon Juice:
    In a large, heavy-bottomed saucepan, combine the chopped strawberries, granulated sugar, and lemon juice.
    Stir well to combine, and let the mixture sit for about 30 minutes. This allows the sugar to dissolve and the flavors to meld.

    3. Cook the Jam:
    Place the saucepan over medium-high heat and bring the mixture to a boil.
    Reduce the heat to medium-low and let it jump cook for approximately 4 minutes, stirring constantly.
    The jam should thicken and reach the desired consistency.
    During the last few minutes of cooking, add the finely chopped mint leaves, the food coloring and stir them into the jam.
    This will infuse the mint flavor into the jam.

    4. Test the Jam:
    To check if the jam has reached the desired consistency, place a small amount on a chilled plate.
    If it wrinkles and holds its shape when you push it with your finger, it’s ready.

    5. Cool and Store:
    Once the jam is ready, remove it from the heat and let it cool slightly.
    Seal the jars and allow them to cool completely before storing them in a cool, dark place.
