Strawberry-Asparagus Jam

The white asparagus-strawberry combination is nothing new here at the "corner", after all you might have already seen once in a dessert. So it was naturally that I gotta cook a jam of these two. Together with vanilla and orange it made a delicious and pretty addictive jam, at least as far as I am concerned.


makes 2 glasses
500 g white asparagus

250 g strawberry
2 oranges
1 vanilla pod
530 g gelling sugar
10 g agar-agar (optional, if you don't want it to be a little runny)

Peel asparagus and cut the ends off, then take these parts and add just enough water so that it is covered and cok for 15-20 minutes, then sieve. Now take the reserved liquid, add sliced asparagus, strawberries, lemon juice and zest, vanilla pod and previously scrapped seeds, gelling sugar and agar-agar. Cook for 30-40 minutes and if you want puree or leave it as it is. Pour into sterlised jars and leave them to cool covered well in some blanket until it has cooled down completly.

That is a very original combination! Something I haven't tried yet...
