I have always been skeptical about store bought jams and syrup, you honestly never know what has been put in it and how much sugar it contains. So instead I tried making my own and to keep it as fresh as possible, I usually just make a small portion for the rough amount I need for the day.
You can seriously just make this in less than 15 minutes and use it as a jam/syrup (depending on you needs to adjust the cooking time), so I would call this a fruit jelly!
What you need: (to make about a portion for a high tea set with two scones)
– 80g strawberries
– 10g sugar
What you do:
1. wash all the strawberries and chop ip into small pieces and pour into a pot
2. add sugar and bring it to a boil at medium heat
3. turn off the heat as soon as it boils for a syrup or keep the heat until it begins to boil down to thicker texture for jam.
p.s. you can basically make with manynkinds of fruit, the smaller pieces you chop the quicker it boils.
