    Easy strawberry conserve

    • Preparation time: 20 minutes
    • Cooking time: 20 minutes
    • Total time: 40 minutes 40 minutes

    Makes: About 500g


    400g strawberries, washed, hulled and left whole
    250g Tate & Lyle Jam Sugar
    Juice of ½ lemon
    Knob of butter


    1. Place 2 saucers in the freezer. In a large saucepan,gently heat the strawberries with the sugar and lemon juice, stirring occasionally until the sugar has dissolved. Add the butter and bring to the boil.

    2. Boil rapidly for about 5-6 minutes, until setting point is reached. To test this, place a teaspoon of the conserve onto one of the cold saucers and leave for a couple of minutes, then push the blob with your finger — it will wrinkle slightly if set. If not, return the pan to the heat and boil for 2 minutes more and test again. Spoon off and discard any scum from the surface, then pour the conserve into a small serving bowl or sterile jar and leave to cool. Store in the fridge, covered, for up to 1 week.
