Out in the fields

Sunday mornings are usually dedicated to nature. 
Some fruit and vegetable filled the basket. 
A few pictures and of course something special 
just for you!

strawberry jam

  • 2 cups of fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced
  • 2 cups of sugar
  • 1/4 cup of water
  • 1 tsp fresh lemon zest

Wash and slice your strawberries.Put them into a saucepan 
with the water, lemon zest, and sugar.Add sugar a little at a time and taste as you go.  
You may like your jam a little less sweet.  Cook over medium 
heat until jam thickens and reduces. Mash with a potato masher while cooking to 
break up big chunks. Pour into a heat resistant jar and store 
in the fridge for up to two weeks.
