Before strawberries vanish from the market, I want to use them to the maximum.My long term wish was to make this preserve that without any preservatives or pectin..With just three ingredients you can make this preserve and store in a refrigerator for future use as spread over bread/roti or to make milkshakes,etc.Here made it with chopped pieces so as to get some chunky pieces while bitting but you can also blend it for finer version.Here I havSo do try this soon before these berries say bid adieu this year.
