When we went to Brittany for Easter I found that I had forgotten my handwritten, and rather tatty piece of paper, which has my instructions for making Strawberry Jam, and I'd found some beautiful strawberries in the Supermarket.
I paused for a moment, wondering if I should ring my younger son, ask him to find the paper and call me back, but then I and realised there was another solution. I had made Strawberry Jam last Easter, and I was pretty sure that I had written a post. I checked the recipe page, here, and then clicked through to Strawberry Jam. I followed my instructions and hey presto:-
Three beautiful jars of homemade strawberry jam, (and a tiny bit left over for the last two days of our holiday.)
It's made me realise that I must spend some time, during the next week or so, updating my recipe index, as it is actually a very useful tool!
Happy St George's Day, and I know this recipe uses Breton strawberries, but in a few weeks English ones should be available, and I'll certainly be making more jam.
|Beautiful Breton Strawberry Jam|
|Lots of 1KG boxes of Strawberries|
|Which one should I chose?|
|I love the fact that the strawberries are laid in|
a pattern, so that they are not all bruised
|A local Breton based company|
|Even better when the cover is removed|
|I washed them|
|And found the recipe!|
|So simple, I cut them in half|
|Covered with sugar|
|Mixed them gently and left for two hours|
|Lots of delectable juices|
|And pot into jars|
And this year my little girl agreed that
home made is superior to shop bought!
