Easy Peasy Strawberry Jam




We are so blessed to be able to get this beautiful fruit from the local Farmer Market all year round:


Max loves strawberries jam so I decided to make my own to replace the store bought one, which was made with long list of ingredients:


Ooo btw, I just tried the rinsing-strawberries-with-vinegar-trick to make berries last longer and I am sold! Although, I still freeze some of mine since I usually bought strawberry one big box at a time {because it's cheaper ;)}.


Back to strawberry making; I tried many different recipes before settle with this one. The only con with this version is since it use MUCH less sugar, it has to be kept in refrigerator to keep it from molding.

The process:
Place the berries and sugar inside a pan.

Cook for about 15 minutes or until the strawberries are soft


Let it cool. Then use hand mixer to crush the berries to your desired texture

 Enjoy!
