Whole strawberries will add even more taste to your strawberry jelly.
If you like strawberry jam, you will just die for this one! The whole fruits give the jelly a very special taste.
Off course it is a little bit more difficult to handle, because the whole strawberries tend to fall off the bread.
But for persons older than 10 years it shouldn't be a problem. :-)
2 pound strawberries
2 pound sugar
1 package fruit pectin
Cut the strawberries in pieces and put into a bowl together with sugar and fruit pectin.
Leave the bowl (covered with a towel) in a cool place til the next day. Stir once in a while.
Boil mixture then simmer for 5 - 10 minutes. Stir frequently. When finished take off the foamy top layer of the mixture.
How to know the jelly is finished? Put one teaspoon of the hot mixture onto a plate, if it gelatinizes, the jam is ready.
Pour the hot strawberry jam in hot sterilized jars. Make sure to fill it up to the top. Clean the jars with a damp towel. Close tightly. After 10 minutes turn around and place jars on the lid. Let cool down, turn around again and store.
