Work in progress….strawberries jams
The strawberries have been popular since ancient Roman times and were used for a wide variety of medicinal purposes such as alleviating inflammation, fever, kidney stones, bad breath, gout and more.
Strawberries are rich in the essential nutrients vitamin C, potassium, folic acid and fiber. One cup of fresh strawberries contains 160% of your daily needs for vitamin C, for only 50 calories! yheaa!!!
250 brown sugar
place the plums in a pan with 100 ml water and bring to a simmer, then cook gently for 10 minuters until the plums are soft but still intact.
Add the sugar to the fruit and stir over a low heat untill all the sugar has dissolved, cook for 30 minutes
Sometimes this can take a 30 minutes and on other occasion up to 40-50 minutes, depending on how much water the jam contains.
Pour the jam into hot, sterilized jars and seal.
