When we were wee and used to come down here to visit our grandmother she would serve them. Hers were made with wild berries and probably tasted better..
Gram always served this in her little preserve dishes..
Some people call them fruit nappies..
She would also have slices of homemade bread and butter and white cake with white icing..
Here is my version...
2 quarts of whole strawberries..
Wash and mash good with a potato masher.
Place in a large pot and add 3 cups of sugar and 2 T. lemon juice.
Stir well and bring to a boil for 3 minutes..
Add 2 more cups of sugar and boil for 5 more minutes..
Skim all of the foam off the top and let sit overnight or all day..
Then reheat to boiling and bottle in sterilized jars..
