I have always been a strawberry lover...I just love its smell because there is something magical about it. Surprisingly I got hold of real strawberries when I moved to Mumbai before that I had eaten it in various forms like Ice cream, Milkshake etc. During my pregnancy I had gorged upon many a glasses of fresh strawberry milkshake. Unfortunately Hubby has never been a fan of the lovely fruit & fortunately Arnav also loves them.
That is why when I saw this post from Revati I knew I had to try this Strawberry Jam for two reasons
- Arnav is a jam fanatic
- The recipe was so very simple that it is criminal to not try it.
Such was my excitement that I forgot my throat pain & tiredness. But as is said all is well that ends well because my brat loved the jam so much that he just couldn't keep his fingers off it.
Fresh Strawberry Approx 1.5 cup
Sugar In exactly the same proportion as Strawberries
Finely chop the Strawberries, measure it & take the same amount of sugar.
Put the both in a heavy pan and switch on the gas. Keeping it on a medium flame, stir till the sugar dissolves.
Put the gas on sim now and keep stirring the mixture. Keep stiring so that the sugar doesn't get burnt & it doesn't stick also. The Jam should be ready in 15-20 mins. Check the consistency of the jam, when it forms a neat unbroken string between your thumb and index finger consider it to be done.
Notes: My Jam was a little overcooked and getting it out is a little mehnat but for first time It was good! Thanks Revati for thuis lovely recipe. As you can see my brat cannot have enough of it.
