Let's do some serious strawberry jamming in the kitchen. Here it goes:
Wash, hull, and cut/slice two (2) lbs, about one kilogram, of strawberries and put them in a large pot with two (2) cups of sugar. Stir.until well blended. Let it come to a full roiling boil and then turn it down to a simmer for about 45 minutes to 1 hour.
Stir often to keep the jam from burning.
I added half an apple to the strawberry
jam to aid with pectin. Thin peels of a small lemon and its juice will also do very well.
When the strawberry jam has turned into a much darker color than it started with, try dipping out a tablespoon of the jam to put on a small plate. It it does not "run," it is ready to be put in clean jars.
If the jam is going to be used soon, store in the fridge. Enjoy the jam!.
While waiting for the strawberry jam to gel, how about a listening to the Beatles? This is totally awesome!
