Strawberry Quick Jam No Pectin Main 1

Strawberry Quick Jam (No Pectin)

Love homemade jams but not ready to start canning? In this video, I show you how to make a strawberry quick jam that is pectin-free and will stay fresh for about 3 weeks. It’s easy and delicious!

Ingredients

1 lb fresh strawberries
½ cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
Pinch of salt

Directions

Add strawberries, sugar, lemon juice, and a pinch of salt to a heavy-bottomed pot and cook the mixture over a medium heat. As the fruit begins to soften, mash the fruit with a potato masher. Place 2-3 metal spoons in the freezer.

Bring the mixture to a boil and stir frequently. Cook until the mixture thickens, about 20 minutes.

To check for doneness, dip one of the frozen spoons in the mixture. If you can drag your finger across and the jam holds its form, it is done.

Transfer the mixture to a 2 8-ounce mason jars and let cool. Seal and keep in the fridge for up to 3 weeks.

Creamy Lemon Pesto Salad Dressing Vegan Main 1

Creamy Lemon Pesto Salad Dressing (Vegan)

Want a delicious and creamy pesto salad dressing that is also plant-based and vegan? You have to try this recipe! In this video, I show you how to make a lemon pesto vegan dressing using aquafaba.

Ingredients

1/2 cup aquafaba (liquid from a can of chickpeas)
1/4 tsp cream of tartar
1/2 oil
2 teaspoon lemon juice
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons dried basil

Directions

Take your can of chickpeas and shake it well to mix in all the starches and proteins.

Open the can and pour it out through a strainer so as to separate the chickpeas from the liquid (aquafaba). NOTE: Any aquafaba you don’t use in this recipe can be saved by pouring it into ice cube trays until frozen. Once the cubes are frozen, pop them out, store it in a bag, and use anytime you need. Aquafaba is a great egg replacer, it can be used to make ice cream, mayonnaise, meringue, marshmallow fluff, and more.

Place 1/2 cup aquafaba in a bowl. Add in 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar and start mixing with an electric hand mixer. Start off slowly and gradually increase speed.

Once the aquafaba is nice and foamy, begin adding in the other salad dressing ingredients. Do not stop mixing.

Add in 1/2 teaspoon salt, 3 minced garlic cloves, and 2 teaspoons lemon juice. Slowly pour in 1/2 cup olive oil while continuing to mix. Add in 2 teaspoons dried basil and slowly work it in.

Pour on your salad. Toss and serve!
