Hello and a morning to all the lovely talented ladies! How’s it going in this “3 days to Christmas” phase. Not too good here at the Tru-palace: Im only cooking and baking and jamming (that would be making jams)! But finally, R is back, the tree is done over rehearsal chicken wings in soy sauce and wine dinner, and it’s looking just the way I thought it would. But that’s a different story! Today, it’s only Jam we will be talking about.
There is something about homemade jams that keeps me glued to them. I love its taste, I love the fact that it has no preservatives, I love the fact that they are absolutely dump-and-go that much suits my style and I love the fact that they are so easy to make and yet gives you so much credit. I love being appreciated! So, obviously when I got 1/2 a kilo of strawberries from Mahabaleshwar, it was evident that some of it are going into the making of the most tasty jam ever. I’m such a self praising thing, am I not?
So, let’s do this. You’ll begin with about 2 cups of strawberry pulp. How to make strawberry pulp? Take the leaves off and simply mash them with a fork. No brainer.
Once you get your pulp cornered, (add a lot of spills if you are listening to good music and dancing like me while you are doing this) add 3/4th cup of caster sugar and a tbsp of lemon juice. Lemon Juice will keep the sugar from crystallizing, giving your jam a smooth consistency.
Now, dump all of it in a saucepan and cook in medium heat for about 5-7 minutes and then on low for about 10 minutes stirring occasionally. You’ll see a lot of white froth in the beginning, which will die out later. Once all the foam has settled and your strawberry mixture starts looking thick, pick your jam with a fork and see whether it stays on the fork without dripping. If it does, your jam is done.
Enjoy with fruit bread, home made ice cream or ah come on however you wish. I’m no food website! I’m only a foodie!

I Loved it Rukmini…Thank You…
Thank you Sant-Oz. Maybe it’s time to open a patisserie shop.
That’s it! Wow…we usually do a big long drawn out process (although it’s not that hard…I joke!), but it’s a little more extensive I think…haven’t actually made jam in awhile, but that’s a nice way of doing a little batch. Fabulous! Have you made peach jam? My favourite! Your jam looks fab! wendy xo
Hi Wendy. Well, I have never made peach jam before but sounds like a plan. Do you use pectin? That’s how my mum makes.
Yes…pectin. Exactly! You will have to try peach….YUM! xo
