This title tells you two things about me:
I love strawberries and I love The Beatles.
Now it is the season for strawberries, so I will put my questionable taste of music aside and talk about the gorgeous red sweetness that is this fruit.
|Homemade Strawberry Jam|
Living in the 21h century, you can get strawberries all year round.
But even if they look and smell like they should, the taste is only right for a short time.
So what about the other nine months of the year?
The answer is simple: Jam!
Mama Loca´s Homemade Strawberry Jam
What you need:
1,5 kg Strawberries
0,5 kg Jam Sugar
|Strawberries and sugar|
What you do:
1. Wash and cut the strawberries
2. Mix strawberries and sugar in a pot
3. Cook the mixture for around three minutes on medium heat
4. Use a blender and blend everything down
If you feel extra fancy, you can add other fruits (raspberries or rhubarb are great) or a vanilla pod to the mixture, just adjust the total amount of fruit and sugar so you always have 3 parts fruit on one part sugar.
Pour the jam into jars (rinsed with boiling water), put on the lid and let it cool down.
That´s it, you are done.
Ah, with one exception: Always remember to lick the spoon. The best part!
|No matter how old…|
