Sicula sugnu

Sicula sugnu: a voyage into my Sicily with the same surprise and curiosity as if Eva came here now!!!

sabato 8 giugno 2013

not always the same jam anymore!

During my time away from working
waiting to walk again 
I had more spare time for me
among other things, I tried to do new experiments in cooking
at least new to me.

Strawberry time is almost gone in Sicily
why not to try to make strawberry jam?
My mother had ALWAYS made ONLY Queens apple jam for years!

I  used rigorously organic strawberries
brown sugar
and lemons from my beloved lemon tree!


it was quite simple!

you need :
500gr of strawberries
400 gr of brown sugar
the juice of one lemon
the grated peel of the  lemon 

cook together the all ingredients
till they reach the right consistency

then pour the hot jam into hot glass jars
previously heated in the hoven to sterilize them
then keep  the jars upside down for a while
and then if you want to preserve your jam for a longer time
keep the jars  in boiling water for about 30 minutes

Try also 
another variety with :

500 gr strawberries
5oo gr apples
400 gr brown sugar
15 leaves of fresh mint
