That is, slightly unripe peaches and nectarines, freshly picked garden strawberries, it’s also strawberries.
Fruits and berries before processing thoroughly with cold running water.
On the back of nectarines and peaches, we slit the skin crosswise with a sharp knife. Put the fruit in a pot of boiling water for 20 seconds. Then we immediately send to the icy water to cool and stop the cooking process.
Carefully remove the skin.
Peeled peaches are cut in half, then into 4 pieces, remove the bones. Then cut into cubes of 1.5-2 centimeters.
Peeled nectarines are cut in half, pick up a bone, send the fruit into a bowl. Large nectarines need to be cut in the same way as peaches.
Put the fruit pieces in a deep bowl, add sugar, mix it so that it is evenly distributed between them.
After the fruit juice is released (about 2 hours), we transfer the mass to a saucepan with a thick bottom and set it on the stove, bring to a boil.
Cook over medium heat for about 20 minutes, remove the skins. Large strawberries cut in half, small leave whole. Add the strawberries to the skillet with boiling jam, shake, bring to the boil again. Cook another 10-15 minutes, again remove the skins.
Remove the saucepan from the heat, leave for 10-12 hours (preferably at night). Cover it does not need to close, just cover with a clean towel.
