Soft-set Strawberry & Pimm’s Jam


  • 1.5kg/3lb 5oz strawberries, hulled and halved if large
  • 1kg bag jam sugar (it has added pectin)
  • juice 2 lemons
  • juice 1 orange
  • 3 tbsp Pimm’s No 1


  • Put a few saucers into the freezer for later. Put the strawberries into a preserving pan (or your very largest saucepan), then mash roughly with a potato masher, or crush slightly between your fingers and thumbs to make them a little juicy. Stir in the sugar, then put the pan over a very low heat. Stir occasionally until the sugar has dissolved and the berries are surrounded with red syrup. Don’t let it boil. Once the sugar crystals have gone, stir in the lemon and orange juice.
  • Turn up the heat. Once the jam reaches a foaming fast boil (this will read 105C on a preserving thermometer), set a timer for 10 mins. After 10 mins, put 1 tsp of jam onto one of the frozen saucers, put into the fridge for 1 min, then push your finger through the jam. If the jam wrinkles, it is ready. If not, boil for another 2 mins and test again. As soon as the jam is ready, remove from the heat. Leave to cool for 30 mins, skim away any scum, then stir in the Pimm’s. Ladle into steralised jars.
  • Will keep in a cool, dark place for up to 1 year.

Spring Clean with Kilner

Spring Clean with Kilner
If you fancy a spring clean this weekend, here are our top tips to keep your kitchen organised and sparkling clean.

Glass is the best and safest option to store food in your kitchen, as it is BPA free. BPA is a toxic chemical used in the production of plastics.

Glass also enhances food flavours and repels odours and colours making it far easier to clean than plastic.

1. Organise your worktop

Kilner jars make brilliant work top organisers. Not only are they great to store frequently used items, such as rice and pasta but they also make beautiful vases.

2. Organise your store cupboard or pantry and label everything

Over the winter, you must have stocked up on plenty of delicious food to keep you going through the cold dark months. Now the spring has finally arrived it’s time to discover what you’ve got left and organise your kitchen cupboards with cute jars and labels.

Domestic Goddess Tip: Use glass Kilner jars to store food and spices. Glass jars allow you to quickly see what you have in your kitchen cupboards without having to open every single container to check what’s inside.


If you have a busy work and home life, finding delicious recipes to cook on a daily basis can be tricky.

If you keep enough spices and herbs in your pantry, you can easily jazz up simple meals such as spaghetti into something rather delicious.

Kilner Spice jars

If you enjoy adding flavour to your recipes you will love our brand new shaker jar lids, perfect for spice, herbs, parmesan cheese and even sweet cupcake sprinkles.

Store dry food safely and then shake or sprinkle over meals.
