Hi Gina! Do you know how to make strawberry jam with wine? You know the ones that are served on top of macdonalds's strawberry sundaes? They taste very good. Do you have any idea what kind of wine do they use???? Thanks!


Regards,
Elly

Hi Elly

I split your reply from Mamac's home made irish cream recipe and place it here.

because its not related to irish cream. and i move your topic to I Dream of Having...

What makes you think that the jam had wine? The ones served at McDonalds, I suspect, do not have wine. Because the food there are certified Halal. Muslims cannot consume wine or anything made with wine. Wink

but you want a good strawberry jam recipe that has wine in it, Stefanie has posted hers here. its Strawberry Jam with Vodka. Its very good.

Hi Elly...Gina is right...Macs strawberry sundae sauce is most likely not to have wine in it.

Please try my strawberry vodka jam,if you want to make it into sauce thickness for ice cream then pour over while still warm..it sets when it is cold. Posted for your convenience:

This is an original recipe,please follow instructions closely so as to preserve the jam well. Also,sugar content has been reduced already,any further reduction and it will not set.

YOU NEED:
250g strawberries
zest and juice of 1/2 a lemon
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
110 to 130g fine caster sugar
2 tbsp vodka (Absolut Kurant or Raspberry)
1/2 tsp butter
pinch of salt

HOW:
Sterilise a 250ml jar,wash with boiling water,wipe,then place in a preheated 100C oven to dry completely.
Place a small dish in the freezer. Wash the berries,pluck off leaves and choose 2 or 3 of the softest,reddest ones.
Mash with the lemon juice and zest to release natural pectin which helps to set the jam.
Cut rest of strawberries up into even chunks. Not too small as you want chunks of fruit.
In a heavy based pan over medium heat,place mashed berries with sugar,cider and stir,place chopped berries in with pinch of salt.
Pour in vodka,you may choose to ignite to let alcohol burn off right away---if you don't ignite...it will evaporate anyway.
Keep stirring,occasionally dab down pan sides with a wet brush.
Allow 5 to 7 minutes of rapid boiling and stirring---to test if jam sets,place a little on your dish from the freezer.
If jam forms a skin,and wrinkles when pushed,it is ready. If it slides down like a sauce,continue to boil for 1 to 2 mins more.
Turn heat off,stir in butter to remove any foam that has formed on jam.
Ladle carefully into your hot,sterilised jar,place a square of baking paper over the cap,seal immediately and store in the fridge,to let it cool and set.

Hi ellyso

Yup, Stefanie's original strawberry vodka jam tastes absolutely divine. This horse's mouth had the privilege of enjoying it.... fresh, unique, with just the right touch of tartness and alcohol... Reading this posting brings back drooling memories. Thanks again, Stef.
