The redder your strawberries, the better the colour of the strawberry curd will be. If you really need to, stir in a few drops of red food colouring.
You can make the curd well in advance, if you like.
To sterilise jam jars preheat the oven to 150°C/fan130°C/gas 2. Wash your jars and lids in hot soapy water, rinse well, then leave to drain briefly. Put the jars upside down into the warm oven and leave for at least 15 minutes before using.
