Recently I switched from jam to jams. They are incredibly beautiful and delicious, the aroma is simply amazing. You open the jar in winter - and you feel summer! And the process of making strawberry jam is very simple, you only need a stainless steel pan with a thick bottom or non-stick, as well as an immersion blender. The jam is of medium density; for a denser texture, gelling agents can be added. Watch and memorize how to make strawberry jam for the winter. I got 4 jars of ready-made jam, 250 ml each.
Main Ingredient: Berries / Strawberries
Dish: Blanks / Jams
- Strawberry - 1 Kilogram
- Sugar - 1 Kilogram
How to make "Strawberry Jam for the Winter"
1. To make jam, you need only fresh strawberries and sugar in a ratio of 1 to 1. Sort out strawberries, spoiled berries cannot be used, we take only ripe and healthy ones. Rinse well under running water from dust, discard in a colander to glass the water. Tear off the ponytails, put in a deep bowl. Fill well with sugar, shake the bowl so that the sugar penetrates inside. Leave the strawberries to juice for 2-3 hours.
2. Use a double-bottomed saucepan to prevent the jam from burning. Transfer to strawberries and syrup, purée with a hand blender until smooth. Bring the jam to a boil, make a small fire, reduce the jam by half. Stir occasionally, skim off the foam. The cooking time of the jam is individual, depending on the variety, on the amount of water in the strawberries themselves, as well as on the boiling rate of the jam. It took me an hour to boil down.
3. The finished jam can be seen, it changes color to a darker one, becomes a little thicker. If you drop it on a saucer, then the drop does not spread, but slowly creeps. The jam is ready!
4. Fill the previously prepared sterile jars with jam, screw them with lids and turn them upside down until they cool completely. Then you can put the jam in a dark storage area.
