Bring Co-op to your front door

Big Bag Option


  • 227g pack Co-op British strawberries, hulled and chopped
  • 75g Co-op Fairtrade light brown soft cane sugar
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract (optional)
  • 4 Co-op all butter scones
  • 4 tbsp Co-op reduced fat crème fraîche


  1. Mash the strawberries with a fork until they start to take on a jammy consistency
  2. Drain off any excess juice
  3. Add the sugar, lemon juice and vanilla extract, if using, and mix well
  4. Leave to steep for 10 mins
  5. After 10 mins, give everything a mix and check the consistency — drain off more liquid if necessary to get a jam-like texture
  6. Toast the scones, if you like, and top with the jam and crème fraîche to serve
