Strawberry-Orange Quick Jam

Strawberry-orange quick jam is the perfect thing to do with all those berries you just picked with your kids or with leftover fruit you bought from the market that may not get eaten. This is a super easy summer cooking project that your kids could probably do by themselves.  I say let them try.

This recipe incorporates marmalade, which adds to the complexity of the jam in a way I love.  (If you prefer to make a straight strawberry jam, Martha Stewart has a simple quick strawberry jam recipe that you should check out.)

Stored properly, my strawberry-orange quick jam recipe will be kept in the refrigerator for one week.  But if people in your house consume jam as fast as everyone in mine does, I guess that it won’t last long.  Perfect on morning toast, added to yogurt, or topped on ice cream, this jam is delicious.  If you are feeling ambitious, or you have simply picked a ton of strawberries, you can also try Ina Garten’s recipe for canning your own traditional fresh strawberry jam, which will be shelf-stable for several months.
