Here’s my preferred method for making strawberry jam. It uses a lot less sugar than many other recipes, and I use homemade pectin puree. It’s amazingly delicious.
Place chopped apples, lemon, and water in a saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat; reduce heat to medium. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until fruit is very soft and collapsed, about 30 minutes. Remove from heat. Strain through a fine sieve into a bowl to separate the liquid from the pulp and seeds. Press with the back of a wooden spoon or spatula to extract as much liquid as possible. Discard pulp and seeds. You should have about 1 1/2 cups pectin puree. A bit more or less will work fine.
Place hulled strawberries in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse until berries are pureed, about 1 minute. Transfer to a saucepan. Add strained pectin puree to strawberries. Stir in 1 cup sugar. Bring mixture to a simmer over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium; simmer for about 15 minutes. Skim off foam. Adjust heat, if necessary, to ensure mixture is always simmering without boiling over. Stir in remaining 1 1/4 cup sugar.
Cook, stirring often, until mixture reaches 220 degrees F (105 degrees C), 50 to 60 minutes. Remove from heat. Whisk in lemon juice.
Ladle into sterilized canning jars while still hot. Allow to cool to room temperature uncovered. Cover and refrigerate 1 or 2 days before serving to allow sugar and pectin to thicken up the jam.

Eat good breakfast to continue the day had become a fabulous habit. It’s a best way to start my 24 hours off healthfully. The sugar hit from the fruit wakes me up and gives me energy to take on the morning. Sugar is more vilified as the root of all disease, but sweetness is also loaded with fibre, which is best for your digestive system and helps keep you feeling full all day , and less likely grab a snack out of the street food before break .
Make fruit a at 7.00 clock habit is simple . Simply put the fruit in your fridge next to the sweet drink or on the bench next to your grain bowl , or move your coffee maker or tea kettle — about anywhere where you’ll find it. Before you eat the rest of your food , eat your fruit. If you’re not normally a breakfast person.
