I bought a large box of luscious Louisiana Strawberries last weekend and a couple of nice Mango's. I couldn't resist. However, my plans to use them for a mixed fruit bowl didn't materialize. Since I can't stand to waste anything, today was the day I had to make an effort to save the fruit; I decided on jam.
|Wash and slice the Strawberries and dice both the Mango's. |
I would guess I had about a cup and a half of Strawberries, possibly a scant two cups.
Place in a medium sized pot.
I think this colour combination is stunning, don't you?
|Drift in about 1-1/2 cups sugar. Add the the juice of one lemon.|
|Stirred together and on the heat. So pretty.|
|Bubbling and cooking nicely.|
|Partially cover the pot for the first half of the cooking time. |
I propped the lid with a wooden spoon which keeps the whole thing from boiling over once my back is turned.
Yeah, I've cleaned up sticky burnt-on sugar more than once.
|I love the hue the two contrasting fruits create.|
|The Horn Player will love this with my Biscuits, his perfectly cooked Hickory Bacon and a rich cup of Community.|
Saturday morning, come quickly!
