Natural strawberry jam, without preservatives, The simple, delicious recipe that preserves the aroma and fragrance of these fruits is easy to make. To prepare strawberry jam I used only fruit, sugar and lemon juice.
Our mothers and grandmothers used 1: 1 ratios for the amount of fruit and sugar. I use less, so I put only 700 g of sugar on 1 kg of fruit and I'm sure it's sweet enough even with 600 g.
Sugar is what will help preserve it. If there is too little, then the risk of the jam fermenting and mold being found in jars must be considered.
My husband and child prefer strawberry and apricot jams and jams. In the first place are the strawberries. For them I prepare every year a few jars from each assortment.
No matter how many jars of jam and strawberry jam they make, they never arrive until December. But, I think this Strawberry jam it is the favorite jam of all children, so when making pancakes in our house all children ask first of all for strawberry jam or jam.
In second place is the cherry, the one I adore. I'm glad I have more left.
How do we differentiate between jam and jam? First of all, the jam is thicker. Very ripe fruits and those that are not perfect are used, as for jam. In the picture from the preparation method you will see that I put very beautiful strawberries, freshly picked, but next to them were 300 g of strawberries from which I cut damaged parts with a knife. When I combine quality I with quality II, the result is jam. To be honest, I intentionally crushed some of the fruits in the boiling process, towards the end, in order to thicken the composition, because I didn't want to get Sweety, with all the whole fruit.
I picked some of the strawberries from the land I cared for for a few years, opposite my house, which was abandoned by the former owner. I had even put a solarium there, with his consent. Last fall it was bought by someone else, so I took out my solarium and never entered the field.
The dandruff has grown, the grass is almost 1 m, the new owner has not shown up and it seems that nothing will happen here too soon (but I do not regret it at all). At one point, when I parked in front of the house, in the wind, the strawberries planted by me in the past years appeared in plain sight. Large, red and ripe. They grew so beautiful! They called me to pick them up, I couldn't resist them. Among the beautiful ones there were also a few lightly beaten ones, so I took them too. These strawberries were so fragrant as if they had gathered all the sun and heat, the scent of the timid beginning of summer. I don't know if you read all my posts, but last year in the post with papanas stuffed with strawberries I was talking about how the pheasant came and ate from them.
Raspberry bushes, blackberries, dill and green onions remained on the field. Among them are ballerinas, thistles, wildflowers.
I harvested a total of 2 kg of strawberries. And I made jam with them for my boys. The simplest and best strawberry jam, without preservatives!
It turned out so good that the 320 ml jar was eaten the night I prepared the jam.
It has a beautiful color, and it is influenced by fresh and ripe fruits sprinkled with lemon juice. Lemon juice not only prevents oxidation, it also helps preserve color, but also contributes to taste.
If you follow the instructions below you will not have to boil the jam a lot. After 30 minutes from the moment the jam starts to boil, it can be put in jars.
It is very important to take the foam. You don't want a sugary jam.
Here are the exact quantities for the ingredients and how to prepare them natural strawberry jam, without preservatives:
(For 2 jars 800 ml +1 jar 320 ml)
1.8 kg of strawberries & # 8211 that's all left after I washed them and removed the tails
juice from 1 large lemon
I washed the strawberries, let them in the strainer to dry, then I removed the tails. Those that were slightly hit were cut, removing the affected area. They were not damaged or moldy. Those are not used at all!
I put the sugar on them and shook the bowl so that it covers them as much as possible. I put them directly in the pot in which they were going to boil a large pot, in which when they boil they have a way to swell, without the risk of spilling.
I left them in the fridge overnight. They left a lot of syrup. I put them to boil, over medium heat, adding the lemon juice.
I took the foam until it disappeared. I didn't have to stir continuously in the pot, because I learned from my mother to put a special iron ring under the pot.
This is what the ring under the pot looks like.
I think many of you have something like this in the kitchen, so don't hesitate to use it when you boil jam, jam, zacusca. Sure, we mix quite often, but we don't need to do this continuously if we use this ring under the pot.
When the foam stopped and the volume of the liquid decreased, I knew that soon the jam would be ready. While the jam was boiling, I sterilized the jars. I did the sample with a drop placed on a plate. I put the plate in the freezer 5 minutes before.
If the drops drain hard after coming into contact with the plate, I know for sure that it is ready.
I put the jam with a small polish in the jar.
I put the strawberry jam in jars, sealed them with lids that close tightly, kept them upside down for about 5 minutes (with the lid down), then I put them back in their original shape and let them cool slowly under a blanket for the next 24 hours.
It is delicious! And it is 100% natural!

How to Make Avocado and Strawberry Salad & # 8211 Best Tips & Tricks
1. What is the best dressing for avocado and arugula salad?
When it comes to fruit salads, I like to use a vinaigrette as a dressing. I love the combination of sweet fruit and slightly sour vinaigrette.
The classic vinaigrette is a traditional French dressing that is made with a 1: 3 ratio of vinegar / oil.
What I like most about vinaigrettes like the one in avocado and strawberry salad is that they can mix and match various flavors. As long as you follow the 1: 3 ratio you can use any type of vinegar or oil you prefer.
The classic combination is extra virgin olive oil and white or red wine vinegar. But balsamic vinegar offers a subtle sweetness and an intensity that I love.
If you have a vinegar with a special aroma, such as tarragon or citrus, it is definitely worth a try in arugula and avocado salad.
I like to mix the oil and vinegar in the dressing with some ingredients that intensify the flavors. I added in this light vinaigrette Dijon mustard and a little maple syrup. The slightly spicy taste of the mustard and the sweet taste of the maple syrup complete the umami aroma.
And the most important part is that this vinaigrette is very easy to make. Simply add all the ingredients in a jar, secure the lid and shake vigorously to combine well.
2. What ingredients can be replaced in this arugula and avocado salad recipe?
Another reason why I love this arugula and avocado salad recipe is that it can be made with the ingredients I have on hand.
For example, if you have other greens such as baby spinach, Romanian salad or a mix of several greens, they can easily replace arugula.
I like the taste and texture that shredded feta cheese brings to this avocado and strawberry salad. But if you're not a fan, you can use your favorite cheese instead of feta. Crushed stilton cheese or goat cheese go perfectly with this avocado and arugula salad.
Chopped pecans add consistency and a crunchy texture to this arugula and avocado salad. But if you don't like them, you can replace them with any other nuts, hazelnuts, pistachios, cashews or almonds, and they all fit perfectly. Get a crunchy taste bonus if you fry the nuts.
If you don't want nuts or hazelnuts in your salad, use pumpkin or sunflower seeds.
3. Can we make this salad Vegan, Paleo, Whole30, or Keto?
Of course! This avocado and strawberry salad recipe is versatile, being adaptable to many types of diets.
To make Paleo or Whole30, do not add cheese. When making the vinaigrette, do not add maple syrup or honey. And carefully check the label on the mustard jar. It is Paleo and Whole30 only if it does not contain sugar.
If you want to make this vegan arugula and avocado salad, replace the cheese with any type of vegan cheese you prefer. For dressing, use maple syrup instead of honey.
To make Keto avocado and arugula salad, simply do not add maple syrup or honey to the vinaigrette. The good news is that this salad already has a proper fat and carbohydrate ratio for the Keto diet.
4. Can we make meal planning with this arugula and avocado salad?
This is a fantastic recipe for meal-planning. Prepare a larger amount of salad in advance and you will be ready for a whole week of healthy lunches, full of vegetables.
And here are some things you need to know if you want to make meal planning with this avocado and strawberry salad:
First of all, when preparing the salad, make sure that you have dried all the greens and strawberries well. Otherwise, if they are wet, they will soften faster.
To keep the salad fresh, rinse the arugula and dry it in a salad dryer *. Then remove the leaves on a paper napkin and dry them well before placing them in meal-planning pans *.
Also, rinse the strawberries and dry them well before cutting them and adding them to the pans. If you dry all the ingredients well, the salad will be kept fresh in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days.
This avocado and arugula salad is also perfect for quick lunches at work. You can divide it into airtight pans * of one serving, and don't forget to keep the dressing in a separate container, adding it only before serving.
If you want pecans to stay extra-crunchy, keep them separate. They tend to soften slightly if kept in the refrigerator. So, prepare a bag of chopped pecans and add them before serving the salad, for a crunchy texture.
5. Can we use frozen strawberries?
I do not recommend frozen strawberries for this arugula and avocado salad recipe. After thawing, the strawberries will soften very much.
Fresh strawberries are firm, have a strong aroma and are juicy! Frozen ones simply do not offer the same experience.
If you still have frozen strawberries and you don't know what to do with them, I recommend you try a sweet and colorful sorbet or a fresh fruit smoothie.
6. What can we serve with avocado and strawberry salad?
The fresh summer aromas of this avocado and strawberry salad go well with many dishes. It is the perfect garnish for a barbecue party.
How good does a tender grilled chicken breast with this avocado and strawberry salad sound? A good piece of fish or even a steak would also fit perfectly.
Or, to add even more protein to the salad, you can put some grilled or boiled shrimp on top.
If you are a vegetarian and want to add more consistency to your salad, serve it with these baked potatoes.
No matter what dish you choose to serve with avocado and arugula salad, I recommend you serve it with a glass of prosecco or cold rose wine. It will further intensify the natural sweetness of strawberries.
Now I can't wait to go out grilling, and enjoy this delicious avocado and arugula salad, and a cold glass of my favorite wine. So, let's get to cooking!

Dessert in a glass with strawberries and mascarpone
What I like this time of year when on the streets you smell the lime blossoms and in the markets the smell of ripe strawberries invites you to buy them! And try any recipe just to be with strawberries :). It seems like you are in such a hurry to make something with them jam, jam, syrup, cake, foam & # 8230 something fast or something more elaborate, but as soon as their season passes and we can't find them anymore. This fever overwhelmed me the other day when all the stalls in the market were full of strawberries, I wanted to make a cream cake but then due to lack of time I incorporated a delicious dessert that was consumed as soon as it was ready :).
The recipe is quite common on the internet because it is quick and easy, I made it by eye but I try to write the quantities of ingredients to have a sure success.
Ingredients (5 200ml cups)
- 200g mascarpone or rircotta
- 400ml fresh
- 300g well ripened strawberries
- 4 tablespoons sugar
- optional grated chocolate for decoration
Wash the strawberries well and strain them, then crush them together with 3 tablespoons of sugar.
We grind the biscuits finely, we mix 200ml of whipped cream with mascarpone and a teaspoon of powdered sugar, we keep the rest of the whipped cream for decoration.
In the prepared cups or glasses we put a layer of biscuits, then the strawberry jelly, the mascarpone cream with whipped cream, we repeat and garnish with whipped cream on top. A little grated chocolate and a mint or lemon leaf give a wonderful effect to this dessert.
If you don't have appetizers around, let them cool for an hour. I didn't catch it, in fact the legs stayed behind me all the time I prepared them, and until they washed my hands I managed to pose for two glasses :)
You can try this dessert with any other favorite fruit but it should be flavorful.

The peculiarities of the strawberry
It is a herbaceous plant with a root that grows to about 30 cm deep, both horizontally and vertically. From the vegetative buds of the plant, located at the base, stolons are formed, which are oriented towards the interval between rows best lit.
After a period of 4-5 years of cultivation, strawberry plants begin to decline, which is why a strawberry plantation is viable for a period of 4 years.
The flowers of the plant are hermaphroditic and remain open for a period of 4-5 days. Each plant can form up to 50 flowers, depending on the variety, and the fruit is represented by the nuts placed in the red pulp, improperly called fruit.
