Summer fruit!


We went to pick fruit this week and had a really lovely time collecting plenty of strawberries and raspberries.

We decided to have a stab at making  jam with the strawberries and Isaac really enjoyed himself.

First we hulled and weighed out 1kg of strawberries.

We then squeezed the juice of a lemon into the pan.

Mummy then softened them over the heat for a few minutes before Isaac added a whole 1kg bag of jam sugar!!

The mixture boiled away for 6 or so minutes and was then left to cool. After removing the film we spooned it into jars before delivering it to some very happy neighbours!!
