Strawberry jam


As I mentioned before ... I bough about 2kg of strawberries and don't know how to finish them! The easiest way to use them was to make a jam ... easy and something that can be used with toasts, biscuits, yogurts, etc ... although I love to spoon some peanut butter and jam ... and have them together hihi

Ingredients: 

  • 1/2 kg of strawberries
  • 2 Tsp of agar agar (powder) 
  • 1 Tsp of brown sugar (you should use more if you want it very sweet ... or if your strawberries aren't that sweet) 

How to make strawberry jam
  1. Wash and drain strawberries.
  2. Put them in a large pot and heat with medium heat. Leave them for about 15-20 minutes. Covered.
  3. When they are soft add the sugar and mix.
  4. When sugar has melted, add the agar agar and whisk for 2 minutes. 
  5. Pout in a pot and leave until it cools. 
  6. Store it in the freezer. I have no idea how long it lasts for... but it's been a week and it's still good.
