Cooking Strawberry Jelly:

Step 1: Prepare the berries.

Guessed to cook jelly even in Ancient Russia, however, then it was cooked from oat, rye and wheat flakes. But when they brought potatoes to Russia, and learned to get starch from it, then fruit jelly appeared. So, first of all, we need to thoroughly rinse the berries under cold running water, and remove the steps from them.

Step 2: Cook the strawberry broth.

At the same time, you can put a saucepan on medium heat. with three liters drinking water. Then pour strawberries into an iron strainer and grind it. Put the resulting juice aside for now, but transfer the remaining (cake) to boiling water and cook within 15-20 minutes. After that, the resulting broth is filtered using a colander, and the cake is thrown away. Cast from the pan one glass decoction, and the rest again sent to cook over medium heat. As soon as it boils, pour sugar.

Step 3: Prepare Starch

While boiling our strawberry broth, you can prepare starch. To do this, breed it in that glass of broth that we have set aside. I took 3 tablespoons of starch for 3 liters of broth.

Step 4: Cooking Strawberry Jelly.

Pour strawberry juice into the boiling broth (which we put aside at the very beginning) and again bring the mass to a boil. Then, gently, in a thin stream, we introduce the starch, stirring. Let the boil mass boil and cook about 5 minutes. Then remove the pan from the heat and let the jelly cool slightly.

Step 5: Serve the strawberry jelly.

Now it depends on you how to serve the jelly: hot, pouring it into glasses, or cold (like jelly) - pouring it into portioned bowls or plates, and sending it to freeze in the refrigerator (it will take an hour or two). Enjoy your meal!

Recipe Tips:

- - A similar recipe can be used in the preparation of any jelly: from strawberries, from currants, from raspberries, from blueberries, etc.

- - If you want to cook more or less jelly, note that starch is consumed at the rate of 1 tablespoon per 1 liter of water.

- - Kissel, by the way, is not very sweet, and even a little bit sour. Therefore, if you wish, you can add a little more sugar.
