Matcha Strawberry Jam Recipe

Total Time: 20-minute prep, 20-minute cook. Serving Size: 40


  • 2 lb of strawberries
  • 2 cups of granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 2 grams of lemon zest
  • 1.5 tbsp (10g) of Otome Matcha

How to make the Matcha Strawberry Jam:

  1. Wash the strawberries and remove the calyx (green leafy part).
  2. Dice the strawberries and place them in a bag.
  3. Add the sugar, lemon juice, and lemon zest and mix all the ingredients. Leave it on the counter for an hour. (The sugar will macerate the strawberries and release the water from the strawberries!)
  4. Sift the matcha into the bag above and massage the bag until everything is well-mixed.

Perfecting the Jam:

  1. Place a plate in the freezer (This is to test the jelling of the jam).
  2. Transfer the mixture to a pan and heat at medium heat. Be sure to constantly stir to avoid burning.
  3. Boil down until foam no longer is floating at the top and turn off the heat, roughly 20 minutes.
  4. Remove the plate from the freezer and place a small bit of jam on the plate. Run your finger through the jam. If the jam does not run back through where you ran your finger, it's ready to be canned! If the jam is still watery, continue to boil down the jam and try again.
  5. Once, the jam passes the finger test, store the jam in the fridge in an airtight container.
