Strawberry Jam

Strawberry Jam
Easy, fast and light strawberry jam, enhanced with a shot of brandy and lemon juice, which helps to maintain the bright color. The content of sugar is low and this makes it particularly dietary and more fruity in its composition. Almost 80%!
Ten minutes cooking is enough for the strawberries to retain all the vitamins and trace elements. With more cooking all of them are lost.
