Simple Steps To Homemade Strawberry Jam

JAMMING MODE... but not musical type of jam... 

I remember the last time I made strawberry jam was in 2020 when the MCO started in March.  A lot of food stuff were displayed in Facebook, home delivery, vegetables, fruits, you name it, they have it and they delivered right to our doorstep.  Cameron Highlands was badly affected, with no tourists, the vendors have to deliver their grown stuff to us.  I ordered vegetables and strawberries then... 

And now it is MCO again, I ordered strawberries once again when I saw them advertised in Facebook.  They were selling at RM30 for 6 boxes which comes around to 1.2kg.  I thought of making strawberry jam again for own consumption... I took five packets of strawberries to make jam, leaving one packet for fruit juice the next morning.
Soaked, cleaned and cut into pieces... all 1kg of the strawberries...
Added in some rock sugar and honey instead of refined sugar...
Make it to a boil and then lower the fire....
Have to keep stirring for at least half hour.....
Till the jam is thickened.... 
And from the 1kg... only 2 1/2 bottles of pure strawberry jam.....
And now I have to wait for my baking mode.... 
These will go very well with Scones!!

  4. Does your home made strawberry jam have a tinge of sourness? I like strawberry jam with a tinge of sour taste.

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is....

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
