Activity: Easy Strawberry Preserve made by little hands

Last weekend we tried our hands at a fun little cooking activity with a rather satisfying payout!

The kids (with appropriate supervision) made a super easy 3 ingredient strawberry preserve that got slathered on buttery toast at the end! uuummmYUM!

Ingredients:

  • Strawberries, chopped
  • Lemon Juice, a few tablespoons
  • Sugar or Jaggery

Ratio of strawberries to sugar/jaggery: 2:1

Method:

  • In a saucepan, throw in the diced strawberries and sugar
  • Leave on sim until nice and pulpy
  • Keep stirring until the desired consistency is achieved
  • Add the lime juice after it cools down a bit
  • Store away in a sterile glass jar

Enjoy on buttered toast, chapatis, yoghurt, crackers etc.

Video: A Quick Fix When Pressed For Time

There were occasions when I was hard pressed for time and T wasn’t old enough to eat what we ate, so I’d have to think on my toes and offer him something that was in equal measure yummy and healthy.

So here’s a video of a fruit purée that I would quickly throw in together for him. I’ve used strawberries and bananas, but it works just as well with mangoes, musk or honey melons or any sweet fleshy fruit your baby likes.

Thank you for tuning in and hope you like it.
