Preserving berries

All news Preserving berries

  1. Place your clean jars in a large pot filled with hot water. Bring to a boil and let simmer over medium heat for 5-10 minutes.
  2. Place new lids (rings) in hot (not boiling!) water, in order to soften the rubber that allows the jars to seal.
  3. Pour the jam into the hot jars, leaving around 0.5 cm (1/4 in.) of headspace. Wipe down the sides of the jars with a clean cloth.
  4. Place a lid (ring) on each jar and gently screw on the sealing ring.
  5. Place the jars upright in the pot of boiling water. Ensure that they are covered by at least 2.5 cm (1 in.) of water. Cover the pot. Let sit for 10 minutes while the jam sets.
  6. Take the jars out of the boiling water, ensuring that they stay upright. Let cool for 24 hours without tightening the seals. Over the following hours, you should hear little “pops” indicating that the jars are sealing properly and the sterilization has been done correctly.
  1. Rinse and prepare the berries. Remove the stems of strawberries. Fully dry the fruit with a clean cloth.
  2. Spread out the berries on a baking sheet. Put them in the freezer for several hours. *This step is crucial to ensure that the berries don’t clump in the freezer bag. 
  3. Place the fruit in bags or bowls.
  1. Rinse and prepare the fruit. Wipe down with a clean cloth. Remove the stems of strawberries.
  2. Preheat the oven to 200˚F.
  3. Arrange the berries in a single layer on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  4. Bake for 2 hours. Check if the berries are dry. If so, stir them and bake for another hour or two. Baking time can vary based on the size of the berries.
