Summer - a season of berries, my favorite - strawberries. The first time, while still strawberry honey, I try to eat it fresh.

But as soon as the first wave of strawberry boom passes and prices are falling, I'm starting to harvest jam for the winter. What I like best option when berries are not pillared, and a little crushed. But in a puree not wipe.

I've shared a recipe for strawberry jam with basil, leave a link to it at the end.

To jam was helpful, I boil it briefly, and use less sugar. But that such a jam was thick, I use pectin. Pectin - a natural thickener, which is contained in the berries and fruits. The strawberries did not so much, so I add it separately.

Since the pectin is not available in regular stores, I have specially adapted the recipe for "Zhelfiks" (as part contains pectin and citric acid).

Cooking method

Ingredients:
Strawberry - 1 kg
Zhelfiks "2: 1" - 1 package
Sugar - 500 gr
Citric acid - 10 g
Pectin with sugar to pour rain

My strawberries and remove the leaves. Interspersed in a saucepan and crush kartofeledavilkoy so let strawberry juice. You can, of course, to break all the blender, but I love that was and jam, and fruit pulp. I put on a big fire.

Zhelfiks mixed with 3-4 tablespoons of sugar. When the strawberries a bit warmed up, pour a mixture of sugar and zhelfiksa. Pour gradually and constantly stirring. If you just pour the whole mixture, the pectin skomkuetsya and dissolves.

I bring the mass to boil, add remaining sugar and stir until its homogeneity. Now we need to repeatedly bring to boiling and boil for 3 minutes.

The finished jam poured into sterilized jars, capped and 5 minutes is turned upside down.

I give to cool completely and store in refrigerator. Jam is thick and jelly-like.
