"A good meal is like a present, and it can feel goofy, at best, to give yourself a present. On the other hand, there is something life affirming in taking the trouble to feed yourself well, or even decently. Cooking for yourself allows you to be strange or decadent or both. The chances of you liking what you made are high, but if it winds up being disgusting, you can always throw it away and order a pizza; no one will ever know." (Jenni Ferrari-Adler)

Strawberry-Blackberry-Mint Jam

Ingredients
1/2 lb (250gr) Strawberries
1/2 lb (250gr) Blackberries
1/2 lb (250gr) Sugar
5 Mint leaves

Preparation  (Thermomix)
Place fruit and sugar in TM bowl, program 5sec/speed 5.
Add mint leaves and program 30min/100C/speed 1.
Remove cup from top and program an additional 7min/varoma/speed 1

Conventional preparation
In a large, deep enameled or stainless steel pot, combine the chopped fruit, sugar and mint. Place the pot over high heat and bring to a full boil, stirring constantly. Continue stirring until it reduces and reaches gelling point.
