We consume all jams during the year that I make by the time the new jam cooking season is here.
So my pancakes can hardly wait to get filled with the first freshly made jams.

This year I decided to make my first jam from wild strawberries in the most possible natural and healty way.
In other words, let it be very fruity. This was my motto, so I made it with xylitol and agar agar. That is the way I started.

I went to a farmer and I bought my usual 3 kilos strawberries, this time, the wild ones. I was overwhelmed by their smell and I could harldy wait to work with them. I can tell you that it is safer to get half a kilo more fruits as we ourselves and our family members will be unable to resist strawberry temptation. For this we can only prepare by purchasing more fruits.
Good preserving everyone!

Ingredients




Instructions

  1. We clean the wild strawberries, we wash them through several times and put in in a big pot. I cut each into halves but we can as well leave them as whole pieces if we like it in our jam.
  2. We start to heat the fruits. When it starts to boil we add the xylitol and the agar agar. We cook it together in a few min. We can blend it with a hand blender if we like a smooth jam. We serve it into the bottles with a help of a filter. We let them cool down with covering it with some blanket.
  3. And we are ready with our heavenly tasty wild strawberry jam with a maxium fruit content. It is excellent for pancakes and other cakes.
