Hmmmm I didn’t expect myself to get this domesticated!! Yeah I love cooking…. But making jam!! Ummmm never thought I’d do this. 😉
But nobody told.me it was this easy! Yeah…no.pectin..no artificial colouring and you control the sugar that goes into it. cool 😎 right ! This turned out to be my Sunday morning adventure .
Recipe (Adapted from Ina Garten’ s fresh strawberry jam recipe)
- 3 cups of strawberries ,hulled and chopped in half
- 1.5 cups of brown sugar
- 1 large lemon , zest and juice
- Handful of blueberries
Ummmm that’s it! Easy peasy right. 😉 Get a heavy bottomed pot, add the sugar,lemon zest,juice and.keep stirring on low heat till the sugar has dissolved . Then add the strawberries .Keep stirring on medium low heat for another 25 minutes and you are done! 10 minutes before you are done throw in a handful of blueberries (it was an afterthought!)
Let the jam cool then fill it into sterilized jam jars. It can sit in the fridge for about 2 weeks from all the blogs I went through. Enjoy knowing you are in control of how you nourish your body!! Haha enjoy!!
