Strawberry Conserve
« on: March 10, 2013, 12:59:19 am »
Conserve is whole fruit jam.  As no water is added, an intense flavour results.   To make this Conserve I researched many recipes and took from several the ingredients and  method that I thought best suited the TMX. This recipe makes about 1  3/4 to 2 cups. 

Ingredients

500g. Strawberries, stems removed and washed.
350g sugar
1 dessertspoon of Vanilla. ( I used home made)
Juice of 1 small Lemon.
1/2  green Apple, washed and cored, and cut into 1/4 s.
2 teaspoons of Jam Setta.

Method

COOK WITH CAP OUT

Drop apple on to spinning blades, speed 5 / 5 seconds.
Add all remaining ingredients.
Cook, 25 mins/ temp 100/ speed 1
Increase temp to Varoma / 10 mins / speed 1. ( if boiling up through hole switch back to 100. )
Test for setting on small dish in freezer.
Bottle in sterile jars, screw lids on turn upside down for 10 mins.
Store in a pantry.  Once opened store in fridge. 

Notes.
The first boil at 100 allows for some evaporation, so that when the temp is increased,  it should not boil over.  However a lot depends on the amount of water in the fruit. 
The addition of green Apple, Lemon Juice and Jamsetta assist in the setting as Strawberry jam is notorious for not setting.

I got a big bag of strawberries for $1.00 today so tried out this recipe.
I used 100g of xylitol and 14 sachets of stevia as sweetener instead of the sugar.
It is beautiful jam, but not setting well, I guess because it has no sugar.
I can't see the 3 jars lasting very long.

It must taste nice if it isn't going to last long! I must keep my eyes out for some strawberries to make jam.

Mmmm....I'm going to get some strawberries at our next trip to the market. Running out of store-bought St Dalfour jam.
