After eating as much we could, we still had 1.5kg of strawberries left. So we made jam with these babies.
3 ingredient strawberry jam
I never realise how much water there were in strawberries. They took a much longer time to cook down. Unlike commercial bought jams, home made ones tend to be a little more liquid.
Figs glorious figs. It is fig season and I just could not resist buying 1/2 kg
3 ingredients jam. I did not have white sugar, so I used dark brown sugar.
I think the jam made was a little darker than it should be. All it took was 30 minutes of cooking time.
Using a long tray helps in the evaporation of water from the fruits. Showing the process of the jam making. Apologies, it may not look really good here with top shot.
