Pure handmade strawberry jam

From childhood, I was a strawberry controller. I could eat strawberries from the day they were on the market until they were off the market. I was absolutely not tired of eating strawberries. Growing up, they are still loyal to strawberry powder, but now they have a lot of scruples about eating strawberries. I dont know when, strawberry is no longer a small heart-shaped strawberry in childhood. The strawberries on the market are about the size of loquat, so the price is expensive. The key is the outlandish appearance, which makes people feel terrified. How can we rest assured to eat it? So from the beginning of winter strawberries, looking at those huge and deformed drops of strawberries, I have been afraid to start, but the heart of the sagacity is stronger and stronger. Fortunately, in the vegetable market near my home, there are many farmers around to sell their own vegetables and fruits. Occasionally, one day, an old man who sells strawberries grown in his own field came across. When he came near, it was the small, symmetrical and deformed heart-shaped strawberry that he had grown in his childhood. At that time, I was so excited, just like winning the lottery ticket, and without bargaining, I bought two big bags and went home directly. That day, strawberries were really meals. At noon, I ate most of them myself, and left some for Xiao Luo. The rest was made of strawberry jam. The strawberry jam made by ourselves has no additives at all. You can eat it safely and safely. The pleasure and delicacy brought by the pure hand-made jam can not be matched by any commercial jam.~~

Tips

To make strawberry jam that can chew large grains of pulp, cut the strawberries into large pieces. If you want to eat delicate strawberry jam, you can make the strawberries into mud when you are ready to cook. If you make the strawberries into mud at the beginning, there will be a lot of foam in the boiling process.
Generally, jam is made according to the proportion of 60% to 70% sugar per piece of pulp, because sugar can make jam thick, and sugar is a good preservative. Dont use too little sugar to avoid too sweet, which will shorten the shelf life of jam.
Lemon juice can not only increase the acidity, but also increase the aroma, and has the bactericidal effect, so dont omit it.
The pot for making jam is better to use pots with strong corrosion resistance (cant be boiled in iron or aluminium pots), because the jam is very acidic and easy to corrode pots.
The jam container should be made of glass, boiled in boiling water for 5-10 minutes, sterilized and dried in the sun. Do not wipe it with a towel. It is easy to adhere to fine cotton wool. Use a clean spoon every time you eat, so that strawberry jam will last for 3 to 6 months.
Good jam should be put in a container while it is hot, sealed tightly, placed upside down, and aired to room temperature with the mouth facing upward (so as to prevent air from entering the bottle and vacuum it, thus prolonging the preservation period of jam).
the fruit jam will be finished after a day of jam, and the jam will become the jam. This is also the reason why the jam will become thicker after placing the jam.
