I have already posted about compot, but I thought I would post again as this time around we’re making it with different ingredients.

Strawberry Compot is so delicious, definitely one of my favorites. The strawberries can be substituted with sour cherries or a combination of sour cherries, bing cherries and raspberries.

10 kg strawberries
1 cup of sugar for each 5 L jar

Wash and clean your fruit. Fill up the jars a quarter of the way with your fruit. Place your jars in a big metal pot. Add the sugar (you can make it as sweet as you want) and then fill the jars up with water leaving a 1/2 inch space from the top. Place the tops on the jars. Add water into the pot until it hits 3/4 of the way up the jars. Light a fire under the pot and wait for the water to boil. At some point (sooner than later) you will need to put rocks on top of you lids. When the water boils, take the jars from the water (carefully), secure the lids, and let them cool.
