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.

Among other things, one of the trips is the YTILI experience, which I believe will make Chakula advance even more and I am extremely happy about this. As for the season, in June we enjoy especially in: peaches, cherries, new potatoes and eggplant. Peaches originate from China, and you can easily grow them...
