What is Strawberry Jam ?

Now how do I describe jam?! For me it is a spread made of fruit or combination of fruits and strawberry jam is spread made using strawberries. It has some chunks of strawberries which gives a nice bite and awesome texture to the jam. Strawberry jam is very refreshing and can make your mornings absolutely fruity. Use it with bread slices, dinner rolls, toasts, parathas etc and relish. But believe me more than you relish eating it, you will love making homemade strawberry jam as the house is filled with the aroma of strawberries and that’s beautiful.

How To Make Strawberry Jam

1. Wash strawberries properly. (Although it tends to increase the water content of the fruit, I prefer to wash the strawberries. You can also wipe them with a damp cloth).

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
