Homemade Strawberry Jam During MCO

STRAWBERRIES DELIVERY...

My fridge was empty of fruits the other day and I ended up ordering 3 packets of strawberries online, costing RM10 per 500gm packet, not sure it really weighed that much or not.  Anyway, they were delivered to my house three days after I ordered.  Fresh, yes... a bit too fresh that some are not so reddish yet.  Tried one.... and it left my eyes closed for several moments.... oww, so sour one!!

So what should I do?  I have 3 packets with me... after passing some to my neighbour (I chose redder ones for them otherwise they would shut their eyes too) and I still have lots.  And an idea came to my mind... why not make strawberry jam!  I only have peanut butter at the moment, strawberry jam would be nice for a change.  Quickly I googled and found one recipe on youtube... so easy that if I can do it, anyone of you also can!
I chose those small and not-so-red ones to make the jam... 
Around 300gm... I estimated... 
Diced them up and add in brown and rock sugar....
In youtube, they used white sugar....
Mix with the sugar until they melt... 
And then on medium fire, keep stirring them....
Keep stirring so that they won't stick to the bottom of the pan... 
As my portion is not much, I kept stirring for around 15 minutes or so only....
Test it on a fridge-cold plate... if it sticks, it means the jam is cooked and ready!
Into a small bowl.... 
Then I transferred it to a small bottle.... 
After cooking, this is the amount of the strawberry jam!
Anyway, it is enough for now....
Will do this again when I have the strawberry mode on!
LOL...

  2. I am impressed that you really made the strawberry jam! I want to order Claire's Strawberry Jam - Made in Ipoh!

    You made it sound so easy to make them. Suddenly my thought ran into other fruits like apples, peach and even mixed fruits jam!

  3. I love strawberries. Fresh one as long they are sweet. Not too sour.

    I never make jam at home so any homemade jam sounds good to me.

  8. I find the ready made strawberry jam too sweet. If its a bit sourish, it would be delicious. Will keep this in mind the next time we visit Cameron Highland.

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
