Its that time of the year when you get fresh red strawberries every where you go…Those slightly tangy sightly sweet, pretty looking red berries with a lovely green little leaf on top. They are a delight to have in the house, by mere being there they add a zing to the house… During these days I typically bake a lot with them but this time I wanted to do something different.
When I was thinking on what to do apart from using them in smoothies and baking I thought about my son’s current obsession yes yes its jam so I decided to try my hands on Strawberry Jam… Now I have made mango jam, orange marmalade before but I have never made strawberry jam and when I was chatting with someone on twitter they told me Strawberry jam is a little more difficult to make than others and that made it even more clear in my head. What is tough needs to be conquered (though after making it I don’t think its really tough)
And the results were seriously good I mean really really good, though I made it on a Tuesday and had to wait Saturday to taste it (I am following a low carb diet and Saturday is my cheat day but more on that in the next post hopefully tomorrow) and by Saturday the smaller of the two bottles was already over. So Saturday morning breakfast was a crisp toast with some home made jam and some fresh berries to add some more zing… could it get better than that?
