Strawberry Jam

Strawberries stacked high in the market

Sadly strawberries are not always what they are hyped up to be and fail to deliver that quintessential English summer dose. Faced with below pa strawberries the other day that I wanted to jam I gently engaged the creaking brain. Earlier I had been taking cuttings from my rose scented geranium and I decided to enhance the strawberry jam flavour with them. I macerated the strawberries with the sugar and 18 leaves overnight. Then removed the leaves before jaming the strawberries. To increase the rosey flavour I returned the leaves to the jam when it was cooled to tepid. Then removed again before potting up.

A bit of a palaver, nah, worth it for a divinely decadent summer hit the jam will deliver in the dreary winter months.
