Heidi's weekend beakfast tradition just got a little sweeter
Strawberry Breakfast Jam
Weekends are a premium for me. It’s about the only time I really relax and enjoy the simple things in life. In the summer on Saturday, I treat myself to a breakfast tray with a green tea, my favorite teacup, pinkie up, with a few slices of toasted Italian bread and chill on the balcony. In the winter, I crave heavier foods, so Sunday mornings are my big breakfast days. Platter style. I may make a pan of Ciabatta French toast or bake big, flaky biscuits, with a side of sage sausage, grits and fried eggs. My biscuits are oozing with butter and a generous spoonful of jelly or jam.
That's a weekend breakfast at Heidi's.
Well if that isn't enough, the weekend breakfast tradition just got a little sweeter. Yep, I made Strawberry Breakfast Jam. Fresh Florida strawberries with a twist of lemon juice. The kind of jam that makes you lick the corners of your lips. Crumbs included. I can't invite you all to join me here, but you can adopt my weekend breakfast tradition and start with making your own jar of my Strawberry Breakfast Jam. Nothing better than a happy tummy, and a good Sunday Sermon.
In The Kitchen
As usual, this recipe is simple. No need to get special jars or special ingredients. You will need a little more time with this recipe. So get up a little earlier on Saturday to get this jam started. This diva can multitask. You can get in a good hair conditioning treatment and catch up on your email, while you're making Strawberry Breakfast Jam. Don't you just love me?
Paul Hardcastle - Desire. I went with soft and easy background sounds while I made this jam. Instrumental only. You'll end up playing the entire CD on this recipe.
The Strawberry Breakfast Jam can be stored in a glass jar or a tightly sealed plastic container for up to 1 month. I like the jam on toasted bread but you can also use it as a cake filling, ice cream sundae topping, cookie filling or to sweeten a smoothie.
Even divas make impressive homemade condiments. Spread your wings with your favorite fruit and make a variety of jams with the same recipe.
As always, Look Good, Cook Good and Entertain in Style
