Spring is here! Time flies, I can’t believe it’s April already. I love to see the flowers blooming and to hear the birds singing, don’t you?!
With this nice weather, I already start feeling the coming of fresh ingredients that we will be arriving soon; raspberries, blueberries, asparagus, tomatoes, etc. and etc.! Can’t wait!
Today at the supermarket, I saw these gorgeous strawberries. I could have just eaten them right there they smelled so good. I had a craving for strawberry jam, so I made it! So easy to make at home and usually a lot healthier too. Seriously, you will want to forget about supermarket jellies, jams or whatever else they call them. This recipe includes lemon, strawberries and some sugar. Boom, done! Lets do it!
- 2 lbs strawberries
- 1 1/2 cups sugar
- juice of 1 lemon
Cut the strawberries into chunks and place them in a pot with 1 1/2 cups sugar and the lemon juice and simmer for about 1 hour on low to medium heat. Stir every 20 minutes.
After 30 minutes, mash the mixture with a masher. I love to find chunks of fruit in my jam. If you want it more liquidy, blend it at the end.
