Anyway raspberries are much better for making a Christmas Vodka, so I thought I'd give jam ago.......Have I ever made jam before? The answer must be no!
Get a packet of Jam Sugar from the local supermarket, I use Chelsea. Just chuck in some frozen strawberries (the amount needed) add blob of butter, and stir on a low heat......Skim the scum off and turn up the heat, then boil for 4 minutes. Test the jam on a cold plate to see if it's set, taste it....oh so nice......What a treat! Package in sterilised jars, decorate and it's all ready for Xmas.

|It tasted great so much better than shop bought...|
|I can see the pips this has got to be good, the jam is 100% fruit not chemicals!|
