Strawberry and Prosecco Jam
- 150 ml prosecco
- 1 kg Tate & Lyle Jam Sugar
- 1 kg strawberries
- Put the prosecco, Tate & Lyle Jam Sugar and strawberries into a large heavy-based saucepan and place over a low heat, stirring until the sugar has dissolved.
- Increase the heat and boil steadily for 10 minutes, taking care to keep an eye on the jam to ensure that it doesn’t boil too rapidly.
- Meanwhile, sterilize 4 x 450g jars by washing them in hot soapy water, rinsing well, then placing them in a low oven at 150°C/Fan 130°C/Gas Mark 2 for 10 minutes.
- Test the jam for setting point.
- To check, remove the saucepan from the heat, spoon a little jam onto a cold plate and leave for 2 minutes – it should wrinkle softly when your finger is pushed over the surface. If this point has not been reached, return the saucepan to the heat and continue to boil for another 2 minutes. Test as before until setting point is reached. (You may need to test several times, though be patient, as this testing is crucial to achieve the correct consistency).
- Pour the hot jam into the warm sterilized jars. Leave to cool, then seal and label.
