The lockdowns now & then due to Covid-19 and the home boundedness is something boring and monotonous. Online classes make us stay glued to the computer screens which is bit stressful for young kids like us. Everything is “online” – from food, to shopping basic stuff like soaps, ah! the sanitizer (how can I forget?) and all basic home needs.
My father discovered an online grocery, fruit and veggies store, Farm Fresh Kovai, and I was surprised to learn it was by my classmate Janavi’s father who had started the service to help the residents of Coimbatore during lockdown. We ordered fresh strawberries to try out something new and experience a new fruit.
Strawberries are grown in the Ooty hills near Coimbatore. I’ve read on all Jams which make use of strawberries as basic ingredient. I was in my grandmother’s home in Vadavalli when the strawberries were delivered, and they were fresh and juicy. I thought why not make a jam out of it, then my grandmother suggested that she would guide me to make “strawberry preserve”.
My grandmother and I set out to make my first cooking experiment. It was exciting and a new feeling to enter the kitchen as a cook. It’s an amazing recipe which you can make with only 2 ingredients and lots of grandmother’s love ❤️.
