Katharina and Juergen´s strawberry marmelade

Pics. me

One of our great family-vacation traditions, is that we visit our wonderful friends in Potsdam, just outside Berlin every summer. And tradition vise we are served the most delicious strawberry jam to go with the fresh bio-broetchen that we eat for breakfast every morning.
Apart from the pretty straight forward recipe with relatively little sugar, it´s the blending of the jam with a stick-mixer that that really makes the difference.

For 4 small glasses;

1,5 kg strawberries
0,5 kg sugar
200 ml lemon juice

Blend  with a mixer until smooth . Cook for approximately 3 min or tip it starts to smell a little caramel-like.
Pour into clean glasses , put the lid on and let stand on their head till cooled down.

Variation 1;

Add 10 white pepper and the grated zest of a lemon when cocking the jam.

Variation 2;

1 kg strawberries
0,5 kg rhubarb
0,5 kg sugar

Same procedure as above.

Bon appétit !
