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.

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

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... 

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is
