Well I finally did something today that I have been meaning to try for years. I made some jam. Cheryl put a recipe on her blog a few days ago which sounded very easy, so I thought I'd give it a go.
I got the jars ready.
Put the strawberries and sugar in the pan.
Added some lemon juice.
Stirred it all together, boiled it, sterilized the jars and then,
put the jam in the jars. The smell was amazing while it was cooking, I just hope it tastes all right.
There is only one small problem and that is that the strawberries have risen to the top of the pots even though I let it stand for 15 minutes as Cheryl recommends, it obviously needed a bit longer.
I'll let you know what the verdict of the family is.
Now I just need an easy bread recipe so that I can have a go at making the bread to go with it.
