We had so much strawberries left from our party, about 1,7 kilo, that I decided to make jam. I do like fresh fruit, but I am home alone and that amount is even for me a bit too much to eat. And there are still some cherries left as well, so I won’t be hungry this week, that’s for sure.
Last year I made jam for the first time: plum jam and raspberry jam. We still have some jars left! Strawberry jam I never tried, so this is my first time.
I use one packet of special sugar (Van Gilse) for my jam, that means 500 grams of sugar and about 1250 grams (or a bit more) of fresh fruit. It makes the jam not too sweet, just as I like it.
If you only could smell this …..
