The big Bowerbird went outside to pick our first summer raspberries from the garden yesterday, they are so delicious!. She also collected a heap of Alpine/Wild strawberries. After eating quite a few she thought she'd like to make a jam. Our kids love jam. I told her she could do it in the microwave.Off she went and found this recipe http://www.commonchefs.com/2009/05/microwave-jam/
She also read a couple of others. Her adjusted recipe was as follows
- 250g mix of alpine strawberries and raspberries
- 200g sugar
- 2 slices of lemon
- Place in glass bowl and cook for around 15 mins, stirring after 5 minute intervals
- Created 1 jar of jam and took 15mins to cook.
Remove lemon and place jam in sterilised jar
Perfectly set delicious jam
Not even much washing up
She's just so independent and clever, how proud am I of this 10 year old who makes jam at the end of a busy day with extended family?
