Strawberry or raspberry jam

When I saw that my dear Ena made jam, I had to ask her to share the recipe with you. I do not think there is anything better than a home-made fruit jam from fruit that you choose yourself and then you have a lovely sweet jam for the whole winter to go with pancakes. You can still find strawberries on the market, and raspberries are the stars in July. Certainly that you can make a jam from plums or even cherries that are in season in June. Preparation time: 60 minutes Ingredients: – 3 kg of strawberries or raspberries...

One month after the official start, I hope that you have also recognized my vision. My friend Ena certainly has. Frequently we comment on Chakula’s content and talk about new ideas. In a burst of inspiration, Ena prepared very healthy and delicious Chocó pralines. Many of you will be happy to hear that they are made of only three ingredients and in 30 minutes time.
