As the old saying goes, 'Breakfast like a queen, eat lunch like a princess, and dine like a pauper.' Let me change it and cook a jam with pieces of whole strawberries ideal for little princesses!
2 1/2 cups sugar
1 lemon juiced
1 kilo fresh strawberries
Wash the straberries with plenty tapping water. Pick off the green tops. Combine the sugar and the strawberries in a bowl and place the bowl in the refrigerator for 24 hours. After 24 hours the strawberries will have released some of their juices and some sugar will have dissolved. In a saucepan add the mixture and cook over medium heat for 30 minutes. Stir frequently with a wooden spoon or spatula to prevent burning. With a spoon remove the foam that rises to the surface. While the mixture is boiling, pour the lemon juice in the saucepan and continue cooking. An easy way to understand when the jam is ready is to pour a small amount of the mixture on a cold plate that you have put in the freezer. If it gels then jam is ready! Pour the jam into sterilized jars. Jam should be refrigerated after you open the jar.If your jam junkie, you can take a look at From tree to table!
