Strawberry Jelly with Whole Strawberries
Whole strawberries will add even more taste to your strawberry jelly.
If you like strawberry jam, you will just die for this one! The whole fruits give the jelly a very special taste.
Off course it is a little bit more difficult to handle, because the whole strawberries tend to fall off the bread.
But for persons older than 10 years it shouldn't be a problem. :-)
2 pound strawberries
2 pound sugar
1 package fruit pectin
Cut the strawberries in pieces and put into a bowl together with sugar and fruit pectin.
Leave the bowl (covered with a towel) in a cool place til the next day. Stir once in a while.
Boil mixture then simmer for 5 - 10 minutes. Stir frequently. When finished take off the foamy top layer of the mixture.
How to know the jelly is finished? Put one teaspoon of the hot mixture onto a plate, if it gelatinizes, the jam is ready.
Pour the hot strawberry jam in hot sterilized jars. Make sure to fill it up to the top. Clean the jars with a damp towel. Close tightly. After 10 minutes turn around and place jars on the lid. Let cool down, turn around again and store.
