Couldn’t help to make this strawberry preserves, another one of my favorite sweets. Even though my Facebook and instagram followers asked me to make the jam, I was tempted to make the preserves since I got the right looking berries. Here in California it’s hard to find small berries, just like the ones we used to have back in Armenia. Californian strawberries are so big ,not the kind we’d choose for preserves , that’s why when I came across to these beautiful berries, decided to make the preserves and also share the recipe.
Hope you enjoy it!
3 lbs fresh strawberries
2 lbs granulated white sugar
¼ cup cold water
The juice of one lemon
In a large pot, combine all your ingredients
Start cooking over medium heat, about 15-20 minutes
Do not stir berries with a spoon , stir the pot only
As it starts to boil, reduce the heat to low and cook another 25-30 minutes
It’s a good idea to remove any white sugar foam from the preserves
At this point you can test the syrup, refer to YouTube video for more details
Ready preserves can be stored in sterilized jars for long month
Enjoy Your strawberry preserves !
