Vanilla pod 1, split and seeds scraped out (or 1 tsp vanilla extract)
Lemon juice or cider vinegar 1 tbsp
Butter small knob
Heat a large non-stick pan over a medium heat. Add chopped strawberries, sugar, vanilla seeds and pod or extract. Stir until fruit starts to soften and release juices and sugar has completely dissolved.
Bring to the boil and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 10 minutes or until slightly thickened. Stir in lemon juice and butter. Remove from heat and discard vanilla pod.
Pour conserve into a warm, sterilised jar. Cool and cover with a lid.
