- 2 Quarts of Strawberries Rinsed and Hulled
- 1/4 Cup Lemon Juice
- 6 Tablespoons Classic Pectin (I like Ball Brand)
- 3.5 to 7 Cups Sugar
- 1 Tablespoon high quality Balsamic Vinegar or Strawberry Balsamic Vinegar (optional)
Need ideas on what to do with the foam? Toss in a blender with Ice, Rum and Strawberries for a Daiquiri. Add it to a fruit smoothie or top plain yogurt with it.
Grandma Mary Jane's Strawberry Frosting
My Grandma Mary Jane always made this frosting during strawberry season with fresh picked strawberries from her garden. The recipe was passed down to her from her Aunt Mame. Throughout May and June this cake could be found in my moms refrigerator in a metal 9 by 13" baking pan that had a metal lid that slid open and closed. A butter knife was always left in with the cake so we could sneak into the fridge at anytime and cut off a piece. My brothers birthday is right at the end of the strawberry season and my mother would make a white layer cake with this as the frosting for his birthday cake.
This is frosting great on white, yellow, chocolate or lemon cake.
A Note about Raw Egg Whites: The FDA recommends only cooking foods containing eggs thoroughly to prevent illness from bacteria. Pasteurized in shell eggs can be substituted for the raw egg white.
