Strawberry Juice Concentrate

          Today i literally counted the number of berries while picking, it was exactly 294 which is almost 300 . Every recipe i tried doesn't require these many berries .I had no other go and ended at following one of my routine preservation techniques. I made 2 batches  of concentrate and the recipe here is for  1 batch. Adjust the ratio according to your preference


Strawberries - 150(Approximately)
Water - 100 ml
Sugar - 1 kg

Preparation Method:
 Wash and hull the strawberries and place it in a wide bottomed deep saucepan
Barely cover the fruits with water and boil for 20 to 25 minutes.

Always choose a deep pan so that there's enough space left while foaming

Step :4
 Add sugar and boil until it dissolves.Do not boil more than 3 or 4 minutes once sugar is added

Step 5:
 Filter the boiled concentrate in another clean and dry bowl

Step 6:
Cool down and store away in clean preservation bottles and refrigerate it.
