Preheat the oven to 200°C. Hull the strawberries and place them in a large pyrex heatproof dish or a non-stick roasting tin.
Slice through the vanilla pods lengthways, and open the pods. With the back of a knife, remove the vanilla seeds, and mix the seeds into the caster sugar. Place the empty vanilla pods into a jar of sugar, and the aroma will scent the sugar, for cake baking.
Place the vanilla sugar in a heatproof bowl and the strawberries in another roasting tin. Heat for 30 mins
Combine the hot sugar and the soft strawberries. Return to the oven for 50minutes The heat of the sugar will make the strawberries melt into a gooey, sweet jam. Cool the strawberry jam and pour into the sterilised jars.
For each person serve 2tbsp jam spooned over 3tbsp each of Greek yogurt and granola with extra strawberries, if you like
This is a very simple, but delicious way of making quick jam, without all the stirring and waiting that traditional jam making involves. The roasting brings out the natural flavours of the strawberries, and also gives the jam a wonderful caramel flavour. One of the best ways of sterilising the jam jars is to wash them in the hottest setting in the dishwasher, then place them in a hot oven for about half an hour. Served with lashings of greek Yogurt, this recipe is the ultimate sweet treat.
