Today I’m back on this blog with a new recipe. As we’re enjoying Summer’s heat and sunshine, we also have lots of fruits to collect and can.
In my garden, we do have lots of berry trees. And they are giving us a huge amount of fruits, which is great.
Recently, I made some syrup with these fruits and also jam to bring back with me when Summer is over and its time for me to go back to the city.
I wanted to share with you these two recipes. Hope you’ll like them. 😊
To make the syrup, you’ll need:
– 1 kg of berries
– 1 L of water
– 1 kg of sugar
Cook in a saucepan water and sugar together for 10 minutes at medium heat. Add berries. Stir until it boils. When it boils, cook and stir for 10 more minutes.
Separate the juice from the fruits using a strainer. Pour the juice into bottles.
At this point, my Mom suggested that we could give the smashed and cooked fruits to our hens. But I decided differently. As these fruits cooked with sugar, it was quite the same as usual jam. So I picked two jars and save this sweet and fruity mixture. Moreover, giving it to hens would have been wasting, and I can’t stand waste.
As you can see, with these quantities I made two little jars of jam and two and half bottles of syrup. But it depends on the size of your jars and bottles, obviously.
Hope you like these recipes. I really enjoyed making these, thinking about how satisfying it will be to have these during Winter in my tiny appartment in the big city. 😊
Thank you passing by and reading my blog. I hope you like it.
I’ll talk to you soon in a next post.
Until then, take care of yourself ❤
