There are endless flowers in spring and endless fruits in summer. Liziqi made a lot of jam, enough to eat for a while. When I get up in the morning, I will pick enough vegetables, fruits and flowers for the day. Then I’ll make a hearty breakfast. One day, two people, three meals, four seasons.
Why Do I Make All Sorts Of Jam?
In the hot summer, the happiest thing for me is to have endless fruits. Fruit is really too much for me. Then I might as well make all of them into jam, so as to seal the sweetness of various fruits.
Making Peach Jam
To make peach jam, choose soft peaches. There are two reasons. One is easy to peel, and the other is easy to boil. Some peaches have hard flesh and are hard to peel. Then we have to cut it into pieces so that it can be easily boiled.
The peaches are washed and peeled, cut into small pieces of pulp, and then we add white sugar and boil them in a pot. Lemon juice is used to adjust the tartness and consistency of the jam, and it can also brighten the color of the jam.
Making Apricot Jam
To make apricot jam, we need to wash the fresh apricot fruit and control the moisture. Cut in half and remove the core, then we use a spoon to scoop out the pulp. When boiling, we remember to keep stirring and pressing with a spatula until it is fine and sticky.
The apricot fruit is sour, if you like to eat sweeter, you should put more sugar. The prepared apricot jam is very delicious to spread on bread or snacks.
Making Strawberry Jam
Strawberries are my childhood memory. Many children who grew up in rural areas have eaten it. It is sour, red and tender, and it is full of juice in one bite.
Tomato sauce can be paired with fries, bread, and pasta, and you won’t get tired of it. Tomatoes grow best in summer. I own a lot of tomatoes. So I picked a basket this year and made my own tomato sauce.
Making Blueberry Jam
When I was shooting the video, I discovered that the blueberries were ripe in the yard. This year the fruit trees have grown particularly well and have produced a lot of fruit. So I picked some to make blueberry jam.
Finally, I also made pineapple jam. I get up every morning and go for a walk in the yard. After picking the fruits and vegetables that I want to eat for the day, I will cut some seasonal flowers and put them in the room. With some steamed corn, toasted root bread, and homemade jam, I’ll have a refreshing sweet and sour breakfast. Then I stayed at home, cooking food and crafts.
Thanks for reading. Liziqi wishes you a happy life.
