Strawberry jam classic recipe
- 1 kg of strawberries (cleaned)
- 1 kg of old cough
- half a lemon
- 1 tablespoon vanilla essence
For the end:
From the beginning we want to tell you that from this network of strawberry jam you will finally get 1.5 kg of this dessert, so if you want more, increase the quantities.
Start by preparing the fruit. They are separated from the tails, washed well, then placed in a large bowl. Over them, add the caster sugar (if you want, you can make strawberry jam with gelling sugar), mix a little and leave it until a syrup is formed and the sugar dissolves. You can leave them like this until the next day.
Next, we continue this recipe with sugar strawberries, preparing it for boiling. Add the lemon juice, mix it and leave it over medium heat. You will notice that there will be an incredibly pleasant strawberry smell throughout the room and a foam will form on top. It must be removed with a special kitchen utensil.
Over time, the foam will continue to form, and you will always have to remove it to remove the impurities left by the sugar. To realize that the strawberry jam is ready, it must bind. This happens after about 2 hours. Finally, add the vanilla essence, sliced lemon and / or walnut and turn off the heat.
In order to keep it as good as possible in winter, the strawberry jam must be poured into jars while it is still hot. They must be sterilized beforehand. After filling the jars, they turn upside down to form a vacuum, then cover with thicker beds and allow to cool or use oven sterilization.
If you want to make strawberry jam with separate syrup, take the sugar, pour 200 ml of water over it and leave it on low heat. With a kitchen thermometer , it should reach 105 degrees Celsius. When it starts to bind, place the strawberries on it and let it boil for 10 minutes, then turn off the heat. If at the end they don't seem close enough, you can take out the strawberries and boil the syrup for another 10 minutes, if you want a whole strawberry jam.
This recipe that I presented to you is a natural one, which does not involve the use of preservatives to prepare.

But, if you want something really natural, you have to take the time to prepare the necessary ones and look for the recipe that best suits what you want to achieve.
