Strawberry Vanilla Bean Conserve



I discovered the joy of making Jam with this Mango Jam recipe.I’ve been making it for sometime now.I’ve also tried Apple Jam and Pineapple Jam[yet to blog].So it was with great interest I read through Deeba’s recipe for Strawberry Vanilla Bean Conserve.We get good Strawberries this time of the year and I wanted to try it so badly.I tried making it with a lesser amount first and loved it so much that I already have 3 small jars of conserve sitting happily in the shelf.Yes,the recipe is that good.

So without further ado,here’s the recipe-followed verbatim from Deeba’s.



Strawberry Vanilla Bean Conserve

Recipe source - Deeba-Original recipe here.

Ingredients

1 kg of either very small strawberries or halved hulled larger strawberries
1 kg granulated vanilla sugar (or regular sugar)
1 vanilla bean, split
Juice of 3 limes (or 1 lemon)

Method

Place alternate layers of strawberries and sugar into a bowl; add the lime juice and vanilla bean, cover and leave to stand overnight.Make sure the bean is submerged in the liquid to help infuse well.
Next day, transfer the fruit and sugar to a pan, bring slowly to the boil and simmer for 5 minutes. Pour back into the bowl, cover and leave again for another day.
Finally, transfer to a pan, bring to the boil and simmer until setting point is reached. Remove from the heat and leave to cool a little until the fruit begins to sink in the syrup. Stir and pour into small, hot sterilized jars and cover immediately.Makes about 1.5 kgs of conserve.

  21. Hey, it is not clear when to add the lime juice and vanilla! Do we add it along with the fruit and sugar separately one by one or mix the vanilla bean to the lemon juice and add it to the fruit and sugar mixture?

    Or the lemon juice and vanilla bean mixture should be soaked over night????

    Clarity required! :)

    Plus, what's the difference between lime and lemon?

    A beginner like me wouldn't know! Pardon my ignorance!
