Strawberry jam

Q. How easy can it be to turn fresh strawberries into two jars of delicious jam?

A. If you have fifteen minutes and a Thermomix, too easy, and you'll never buy shop bought again. The great thing is YOU can cut the amount of sugar.

Mary Berry was on British television this week with her new series. While some of you may have been horrified that she let her grandchildren lick the bowl (raw eggs) on national television, I was much more concerned that she suggested making sandwiches for afternoon tea party a day in advance!! She did make her own strawberry jam for her scones and it reminded me how easy it is to do in a TM.

Equal quantities of strawberries and jam sugar (it has added pectin) and juice of a lemon to every 500g of strawberries. I like my jams relatively smooth so I do turbo pulse the fruit for a couple of seconds. 13-14 minutes at 100°, speed 1 should give you a lovely setting point. Just cook for a further 2 minutes varoma, if it needs to set further.

500g of strawberries and sugar will make enough to fill 2 jam jars.

Enjoy!

hi! i am Anne (hence vANNilla) - two 'N's autocorrect WILL autocorrect - grrrrrr I can most often be found cooking up a storm in the kitchen,(with my trusty thermomix) behind a camera or a kindle. If you are a traveller/photographer my bog is @vannilla http://vannillarock.wordpress.com If you have come as a baker my blog is http://vannillarock.com i studied economics in Edinburgh in the early 70's; now retired from a day job, on paper i have plenty of time to explore the blogosphere and enjoy the shared experiences of others. like every other retiree i know we wonder how we fitted in a day job. I split my time between Guernsey,. In the Channel Islands -a 20-odd square mile island with 60thousand+ inhabitants- and Phoenix, Arizona. The mix is perfect- the former is beautiful but attacks of cabin fever are never too far away. Arizona, on the other hand IS king of the open road and has THE biggest bluest sky EVER. my blogs revolve around baking (vannillarock) and photography/travel if you like what you see please do start a conversation :)

i'd love to hear from you...
