One of the things I dislike in winter is the lack of summer fruits in shops. They’re difficult to find, and even when you do manage to find them in some store, they’re just… not the same. Bland and flavourless, yet massively overpriced. I love to use fresh fruits for desserts, porridge, pancakes and such. When that’s not possible, jam can be an alternative – but, in all honesty, store-bought jams aren’t the most appealing with their dubious ingredient lists. Making a whole batch of home-made preserves in summer is the best option, but even in winter it’s possible to make home-made jam, using frozen fruits – frozen fruits which don’t look all that appetizing when defrosted but luckily taste much like real summer fruits should. Today, I’m coming with a recipe for a quick, 15 minutes strawberry vanilla jam!
