Strawberry Jam 

2 cups crushed berries

2 cups sugar

1 tbsp lemon juice

Mix crushed berries with sugar and bring to the boil.

Boil for 10 minutes then add with lemon juice and simmer for about 5 minutes or until jam starts to set. Pour into sterilised jars and seal with sterilised pop-top lids. If you have pretty fabric at home cut out rounds and fix them on with rubber bands.



Here's a very quick and cheap idea: Invest in some disposable plates and festive serviettes. Cover each plate with one or two serviettes and attractively arrange your goodies. Then cover with plastic wrap. Take a sheet of red or green cellophane, sit your plate in the middle and tie cellophane at the top with gold ribbon.
