Cherry and Strawberry jam

When you have this overload of fresh fruit and no chance to eat it before it spoils, cook some jam. At my holiday home a half package of fresh very ripe strawberries and a half bowl of cherries right off the tree was sitting on my kitchencounter.
I solved the problem by driving to the supermaket and getting 1 kilo pectin sugar and some lemons.


Recipe:
250 g strawberries hulled
250 g cherries pitted
1 lemon rind and juice
50 ml white wine
400 g pectin sugar

Chop the fruits roughly and bring them to boil in a sauce pan. When the fruit gets soft and mushy, add lemon and sugar.
Bring to a boil again and cook for 4 minutes.
Use a cold plate and drop a bit on it  check if it gets jamlike.
Fill it in some kind of jar and cool down.

Now you have jam for your holiday breakfasts.
