My first attempt at Strawberry Preserves.
At least it tastes decent. For the first batch, I followed the recipe exactly; it turned out too sweet (but still quite edible!) The second batch, I halved the sugar and it is still quite sweet.
The strawberries all floated to the top of the jars and their syrup stayed on the bottom. I don’t think that is the way it is supposed to work. Ah, well. Such is jam. Maybe, if I’m brave enough, I’ll give friends some of my concoction. Or maybe it would be better for them if I didn’t!
