And here I thought that the strawberry season was over...
This past Saturday when I went to one of my favorite fruit/veg stands, they had these strawberries...195 yen (about US$1.95) a basket!
The sign said, "perfect for jam!"...so I bought 2 baskets.
The berries were ripe, very ripe.
For strawberry jam, I use this recipe, the first time I tried the recipe I microwaved it as the directions said, but now I cook it on the stove.
This time I also squeezed some lemon juice onto the berries.
For the 2 baskets, I used 5 tablespoons of sugar and it was just the right sweetness.
So far, we've had some on plain yogurt.
And on pancakes using this recipe. This time I added some ground flax seed to the batter.
