Memorable Quotes:

"A Bearnaise sauce is simply an egg yolk, a shallot, a little tarragon vinegar and butter, but it takes years of practice for the result to be perfect." Fernand Point

Mom's Strawberry Jam

Mom's Strawberry Jam

4 cups of strawberries
4 cups sugar
Juice of half a lemon
1 piece powdered alum (size of a pea)
1 tablespoon butter (reduces foaming)

Combine ingredients and bring to a hard boil that can't be stirred down. Boil for 10 minutes.

It is better to do two small batches keeping the same proportions if you have more than 5-6 cups of berries.

Put in a large container and let stand overnight. Stir occasionally.

Place in jars the next morning. Label and freeze.
