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.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
