Preserve those Berries!

Preserving Strawberries

I am using my balance scales to take their (strawberries) weight of Loaf Sugar pound’d.  Once weighed the berries and half of the sugar are placed in the preserving pan with the strawberries and as it melts the remainder of the pounded sugar is added.  The whole strawberries are boiled in the sugar until the strawberries held on a pin to the light are clear.  When opening them in the winter sometimes the Top is not fit to use when the next are very fine.    Visit my website at
